Electronic road pricing (ERP) rates will increase by S$1 at five highway locations starting next Monday (Sept. 19).
According to a Sept. 13 press release by the Land Transport Authority (LTA), the price hike will help manage congestion on the affected highways.
- AYE for Alexandra towards City
- AYE after Jurong Town Hall towards City (set of 3 portals)
- Southbound CTE after Braddell Road & PIE Slip Road into Southbound CTE
(Set of 4 portals)
- PIE (Kallang Bahru & Slip road in Bendemeer) – Set of 2 portals
- CTE northbound after PIE (set of 2 portals)
The price increases will take effect for three different time periods depending on location: 8:30am to 9:00am, 5:30pm to 6:00pm, and 7:30pm to 8:00pm.
On the CTE southbound after Braddel Road and the PIE ramp to CTE southbound, the ERP fare will be S$4 from September 19.
“The rates for the other previously announced timeslots/portals will remain unchanged,” LTA wrote.
“With these adjustments, the number of locations and timeslots charged is still significantly lower than the number charged pre-Covid.”
The agency also noted that it would continue to monitor traffic speeds and congestion to assess whether ERP rates need to be adjusted in the future.
