Bayfront Avenue gantry part of existing ERP cordon

Media Replies 03 May 2010

We refer to Mr Wang Ho Yait’s letter "New road gets gantry? Why?" (Today, 28 April 2010).

The Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) gantries in the Central Business District (CBD) form a cordon that serves to regulate the traffic conditions of a basket of roads within that cordon. They are not intended to regulate the speeds on individual roads. This is why the ERP rates are standardised across all roads leading into a cordon during the ERP operation hours.

The opening of Bayfront Avenue provides an additional route option for motorists entering the CBD. The new ERP gantry on Bayfront Avenue is therefore installed to close off the existing Bugis-Marina Centre ERP cordon, and is priced at the same rate as the other gantries that form the Bugis-Marina Centre ERP cordon.

We thank Mr Wang for the opportunity to clarify.
