Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) charges at three gantries will resume starting next week after being suspended at the beginning of the circuit breaker period, according to the Land Transport Authority (LTA).
ERP rates of $1 will apply at three gantries on the Central Expressway (CTE) from 27 July to manage congestion during peak periods.
ERP charges were first suspended on 6 April on the expectation that traffic would be significantly reduced during the circuit breaker period. This is the LTA’s second review of ERP pricing following the circuit breaker, when workplaces and schools were ordered shut to curb the spread of COVID-19 in Singapore.
The outcome of the next ERP rate review will be announced in the fourth week of August, with the new rates, if any, to take effect from 31 August.
