ERP Rates to Top Up by S$1 at 4 Locations on Aug. 1 to 'Manage Congestion'

The Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) rates will increase by S$1 beginning Aug. 1 at four different locations, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) announced in a press release yesterday.

Following the LTA's observation of traffic conditions between June and July and the relaxing of community and office measures in late April, the statutory board said traffic has increased in the expressways.

The S$1 increase will be implemented at four expressways during eight time periods to manage the traffic congestion therein, namely on city-bound Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE) after Jurong Town Hall, Southbound Central Expressway (CTE) after Braddell Road & Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) Slip Road into Southbound CTE, Kallang-Paya Lebar (KPE/CPE) Expressway after Defu Flyover, and Northbound Central Expressway after PIE.

The LTA added that following the adjustment on Aug. 1, the number of locations and time periods charged is still below what was levied before the COVID-19 pandemic.

The adjusted ERP rates effective Aug. 1 are as follows:


  • 8:00-8:30 - from S$1 to S$2
  • 8:30-9:00 - from S$2 to S$3
  • 17:30-18:00 - from S$1 to S$2

Southbound CTE

  • 8:00-8:30 - from S$2 to S$3


  • 7:30-8:00 - from S$1 to S$2
  • 8:00-8:30 - from S$1 to S$2
  • 8:30-9:00 - from S$2 to S$3

Northbound CTE

  • 19:00-19:30 - from S$ to S2
