In response to increasing traffic volumes, ERP rates are set to go up along stretches of the AYE and CTE with effect from 12 April 2021.
ERP rates to rise along the AYE and CTE

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

According to an announcement made on 5 April 2021, the LTA has has observed that traffic speeds have remained generally optimal on all arterial roads, including those within the Central Business District. Hence, ERP charges will remain at $0 at these locations until the next review.

Traffic speeds have also remained generally optimal on most expressways, but in tandem with the progressive easing of safe management measures, traffic volume has built up at certain stretches on the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE) and Central Expressway (CTE).

The LTA has hence announced that ERP rates will be adjusted upwards by $1.00 with effect from 12 April 2021 at gantries in the table below on the AYE and CTE during the specified time periods. According to the LTA, the latest changes mean that ERP will be charged at 12 gantries, compared to 77 gantries pre-COVID, with the highest ERP rate of $3.00, as compared to $6.00 pre-COVID.

There continue to be no ERP charges on other expressways and arterial roads. The LTA also states that it will continue to monitor traffic speeds and congestion levels closely and assess if ERP rates need to be further adjusted as safe management measures continue to evolve.
