ERP rates to go up at CTE, fall at MCE

Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) rates at two gantries on the north-bound Central Expressway (CTE) will go up by 50 cents between 6pm and 8pm from next Monday. The hike applies to the two gantries after the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE).

Prices will rise from 50 cents to $1 between 6pm and 6.30pm, and between 7.30pm and 8pm. Prices will go up from $1.50 to $2 between 6.30pm and 7.30pm.

The rates at two gantries on the Marina Coastal Expressway, in the west-bound direction before the exit to Maxwell Road and on the slip road to Marina Coastal Drive, will see a drop of $1 from $3 between 7.30am and 8am.

ERP prices for other times and gantries remain unchanged.

The changes come after the Land Transport Authority's quarterly review of traffic conditions on ERP-priced roads and expressways. The next review will take place in November.
