SINGAPORE: Bad news for some motorists — especially for those who drive on the already congested Central Expressway.
ERP rates are set to go up by 50 cents on the CTE north and south of Braddell Road, on the northbound CTE after the Pan-Island Expressway, as well as the PIE slip road into CTE.
Rates will also go up on the PIE at Kallang Bahru as well as East Coast Parkway at Fort Road.
The increased rates are for different blocks of the morning peak period and will kick in from Monday.
The increase comes after the Land Transport Authority’s quarterly review of traffic conditions and is being imposed to maintain LTA’s aim of an optimal speed range of 45 to 65 kilometres on expressways.
The next quarterly review will take place in November. – CNA /dt
Wow wee, taxi fare increases, diesel increases, bus/train fare increases, ciggies price also increase. All everyday expenditure, now? ERP increases. Better living in XINJIAPO indeed. Everything is increasing, but yet no pay rise seen. Not that I’m whining, but I guess, this is outrageous. Disgusting XINJIAPO. P U I .
