SINGAPORE – The Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) rates at five locations will be raised by $1 over nine specified time periods from 13 February.

In a statement on Monday (6 Feb), The Land Transport Authority (LTA) said that based on its monitoring of traffic conditions in January, this decision to increase the ERP rate was taken to ease congestion on the roads due to traffic build-up at various stretches of the expressways.

The locations are: AYE after North Buona Vista towards Tuas, Southbound CTE after Braddell Road and PIE Slip Road into Southbound CTE (set of four gantries), Southbound CTE Auxiliary Lane to PIE (Changi)/Serangoon Road, KPE (ECP) after Defu Flyover, Westbound PIE before Eunos.

Meanwhile, rates for the other previously announced gantries remain unchanged. "With these adjustments, the number of locations and time slots charged is still lower than the number charged pre-COVID," the LTA said.

In November, the LTA had announced the increase of ERP rates – also by S$1 – at three locations over five time periods.

In September, the LTA had announced the increase of ERP rates by S$1 at five locations within five time periods.

"LTA will continue to monitor traffic speeds and congestion levels closely and assess if ERP rates need to be further adjusted," the LTA added.
