ERP RATES INCREASING BY $1 AT 6 PLACES FROM 19 NOV, DUE TO “TRAFFIC BUILD UP”

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has completed its latest review of Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) rates.

2.      Based on LTA’s monitoring of traffic conditions in October 2022, traffic has built up at various stretches of expressways. 9 time periods across 6 locations have been identified for ERP rate increases as traffic speeds at these timeslots have fallen below the optimal speed range.

3.      However, in view of the upcoming December school holidays, ERP rates for 4 of the time periods across 3 locations will be implemented only after the school holidays, i.e. from Tuesday, 3 January 2023, as their traffic speeds are projected to improve temporarily during the December school holidays. For the other 5 time periods across 3 locations where low speeds would likely persist throughout the December school holidays, ERP rates will be increased by $1.00 with effect from 19 November 2022.

4.      Meanwhile, 7 other time periods across 4 locations will see an ERP rate reduction during the December school holiday period, from 19 November 2022 and will revert to the pre-school holiday charges from Tuesday, 3 January 2023 onwards.

5.      A summary of the ERP rate changes are below:
