No ERP charges till July 26, says LTA

There will be no Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) charges till July 26, said Land Transport Authority (LTA). 

LTA has completed its first review of ERP rates following the Circuit Breaker, and based on its monitoring of traffic conditions, traffic speeds on expressways and arterial roads in early June 2020 have remained optimal.

Therefore, ERP rates at all gantries will therefore remain at zero until the next ERP rate review, LTA said in a press statement.

The authority had resumed the ERP review process on June 2, in tandem with the gradual re-opening of Singapore’s economy. 

"With the move into Phase 2, LTA will continue to monitor traffic speeds and congestion levels closely. This will enable LTA to identify locations with congestion and determine the appropriate ERP charges."

The outcome of the next ERP rate review will be announced in the fourth week of July , and the appropriate ERP rates, if any, will take effect from July 27.
