31 Mar 2020 | Local News : Singapore


Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) will be suspended at most locations from 6 April 2020, with remaining spots seeing rates slashed.

All gantries in the city and on arterial roads will see zero charge.

In total, 74 out of 77 ERP gantries will see a reduction of at least $2
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic which has seen less commuting, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said on 31 March 2020 that it has done away with the usual quarterly review of ERP rates for the time being. Instead, it will apply zero charging at several gantries during most time slots.

For instance, the southbound gantry along the Central-Expressway from Braddell Road towards city will be free, down from between $2 and $1 now. The gantry along the Pan-Island Expressway between Adam Road and Mt. Pleasant Road will likewise have zero charging, from between $1 and $2 now. In total, 74 out of 77 gantries will see a reduction of at least $2.

The LTA said the reductions are not to encourage people to drive more, and it added that motorists and commuters should still defer all non-essential travel.
