SINGAPORE - Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) rates for gantries on the northbound Central Expressway (CTE) are poised to rise by $0.50 between 6pm and 8pm from next Monday (Aug 1).

This applies to two gantries on the northbound CTE after the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE).

Prices will rise from $0.50 to $1 between 6pm and 6.30pm, and between 7.30pm and 8pm. Prices will rise from $1.50 to $2 between 6.30pm and 7.30pm.

However, prices on two gantries on the Marina Coastal Expressway, in the westbound 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.

The changes come after the Land Transport Authority's (LTA's) quarterly review of traffic conditions on ERP-priced roads and expressways.

ERP prices for other times and gantries remain unchanged.

The next ERP review will take place in November 2016.
