ERP pricing policies to remain unchanged with new system
A tender to develop the next generation ERP system will be called over the next few months.
Senior Minister of State for Transport Josephine Teo announced this during the Committee of Supply debate today.
She explains that the current ERP system is coming to the end of its lifespan, and if left unreplaced, it'll become more expensive to maintain and repair.
The new ERP system, or ERP2, will allow for the calibration of charges for motorists, in proportion to the congested road segments they use.
"ERP2 can also provide value-added services, such as navigation, payment for roadside parking in-lieu of parking coupons and real-time traffic information."
Ms Teo assures road users that there will not be any change in the ERP pricing policy and no new gantries while transiting to the new system.
The new system will be ready around 2020.
