Major thoroughfares such as Alexandra Road and Holland Road may be subject to Electronic Road Pricing
Major thoroughfares such as Alexandra Road and Holland Road may be subject to Electronic Road Pricing or ERP if traffic speeds fall below the optimal range of 20 and 30 kilometres per hour, according to the refreshed Land Transport Master Plan that was released yesterday.
The TODAY newspaper reported that other than the two roads, the Land Transport Authority or LTA said it is also keeping an eye on Jalan Bukit Merah, Commonwealth Avenue, Telok Blangah Road and Depot Road.
These roads are currently within the optimal speed range, but the LTA said that "should these roads become congested, it will implement ERP there as well."
These roads are near the Ayer Rajah Expressway, where traffic congestion around the Clementi area has been deteriorating.
From the middle of next year, motorists will have to pay ERP as three gantries will be installed to help improve the flow of eastbound traffic towards the city during the morning and peak hours.
