    • ERP rates increase from next month

      By Ion Danker – October 25th, 2010

      ERP rates revised

      Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) charges at four areas will increase by S$1 from November 1.

      The increase is part of the Land Transport Authority’s (LTA) quarterly review of ERP-priced roads and expressways.

      Motorists will have to pay S$4 from 8.30am to 9am at the gantries at the East Coast Parkway (ECP) at Fort Road and the Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway slip road.

      Those travelling westbound on the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) near Kallang Bahru from 7.30am to 8am will have to pay S$1.

      Charges at the Central Business District and Bugis-Marina Centre cordon on weekdays from 6.30pm to 7pm will be S$3.

      At the Orchard cordon, charges for weekdays from 6.30pm to 7pm and Saturdays from 6.30pm to 8pm will increase by S$1 to S$2.

      Motorists Yahoo! Singapore spoke to were shocked by the sudden increase.

      “I don’t think increasing the ERP charges will help ease congestion on the road. LTA should get feedback from motorists before deciding to raise the rates,” said HR executive Karen Ng, 28.

      Added delivery driver Mohd Ismail, 57, “The traffic isn’t very heavy in the morning at the KPE slip road so I am puzzled as to why they increase it to S$4 there.”

      According to LTA, the next ERP review will take place next month for the December school holidays.

    • very sad to say.....i think singaporeans are suckers for the govt. You may earn a certain income but your real income is probably half that. This is in comparison to singaporeans working overseas and earning sing, US or Euro $$ while spending on relatively cheaper items like cars and houses.

      Then they raise public transport fares citing increased frequency.

       

      See how smart they are?

    • Expect to see "Singaporens welcome ERP hikes" on tomorrow papers.

      And there nothing wrong with it. Majority of Singaporeans really like the increase. That why 66.6 voted for them a few years back.

      More good years ahead.

      Majulah Singapura.
