Changes to Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) on Saturdays from 2 June 2012

News Releases 28 May 2012 ERP scheme

Shorter ERP operating hours for Orchard cordon, and lower rates for Bugis-Marina Centre cordon

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has completed a review of the ERP scheme on Saturdays for the Orchard and Bugis-Marina Centre ERP cordons, after taking into consideration feedback from business associations and the public, and traffic conditions in the cordons.

2. From 2 June 2012, the ERP operating hours for the Orchard Cordon will start at 12.30pm instead of 11am. LTA will also reduce the ERP rates for Bugis-Marina Cordon from $2 to $1 between 12.30pm and 2pm, and between 5.30pm and 6.30pm.

3. Based on LTA's assessment of the existing traffic conditions in the two ERP cordons, ERP is still required on Saturdays to manage traffic congestion in the two cordons.

4. However, since trips bound for the two cordons on weekends are largely for shopping or leisure, there is scope to fine-tune the ERP operating hours and charges to give greater choice to motorists. For instance, some motorists may be prepared to accept slightly greater congestion without having to pay ERP charges, while others are prepared to pay for a better travelling experience.

5. Please refer to the table below for the changes.
