  1. Hi all, anyone else experiencing carpark that accept the traditional cashcard with chip only? Due to my old cashcard expired after 7 years, I am using flashpay netts in my IU now. Not facing any issue with all erp and every carpark till Cathay Cineplex. When exiting the carpark, the system only can take cashcard with chip. Anyone experienced any other carpark as well?
  2. Source: https://mothership.sg/2022/11/erp-rate-increase-2022/ The electronic road pricing (ERP) rates will be increased by S$1 at seven expressway locations from Nov. 19, 2022. According to a press release by the Land Transport Authority (LTA), it has identified nine time periods across six locations for ERP rate increases as traffic speeds at these timeslots have "fallen below the optimal speed range". Increased ERP rates from Nov. 19 The affected locations are: Southbound CTE Auxiliary lane to PIE (Changi)/Serangoon Road PIE (Kallang Bahru and slip into Bendemeer) KPE (ECP) after Defu Flyover AYE before Alexandra towards City AYE after Jurong Town Hall towards City PIE (Adam and Mount Pleasant) Increased ERP rates after school holidays The revised ERP rates for four of the time periods across three locations will be implemented only after the school holidays (i.e. Jan. 3, 2023) as the traffic speeds are projected to improve temporarily during the December holidays. These are the affected ERP gantries: The price increase will come into effect for four different time periods depending on the location: 7:30am to 8am, 8am to 8:30am, 8:30am to 9am and 9am to 9:30am. Reduced ERP rates Seven other time periods across four locations will see an ERP rate reduction of S$1 during the December school holiday period from Nov. 19, 2022, and will revert on Jan. 3, 2023 onwards. These are the affected locations: The price reduction will come into effect for four different time periods depending on the location: 7am to 7:30am, 7:30am to 8am, 8am to 8:30am and 9am to 9:30am. LTA said they will continue to monitor traffic speeds and congestion levels closely and assess if ERP rates need to be further adjusted.
  3. This will push for more employers to stagger office hours. I remember there were calls to de-centralize CBD some time ago, as a result, Jurong lakeside area was slated to be the next CBD area after Tampines area. http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/morning-peak-hour-erp/864656.html POSTED: 28 Oct 2013 15:03 URL: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/morning-peak-hour-erp/864656.html The Land Transport Authority (LTA) is increasing Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) rates at four expressway gantries from 4 November 2013. The affected gantries are on the southbound Central Expressway (CTE) and Pan Island Expressway (PIE) slip road into southbound CTE. SINGAPORE: The Land Transport Authority (LTA) is increasing Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) rates at four expressway gantries from 4 November 2013. In a statement on Monday, LTA said it is making the adjustments following its quarterly review of traffic conditions on roads and expressways priced under the ERP system. The affected gantries are on the southbound Central Expressway (CTE) and Pan Island Expressway (PIE) slip road into southbound CTE. The rate will go up from S$5 to S$6 from 8.30am to 9am. LTA said the rates for other gantries remain unchanged. It added that the next ERP review will take place in November 2013 for the December school holiday period. - CNA/xq
  4. Till recent, the term "Car-Lite City" have been used more than once by our ministers and PM. Come share your views and opinions what will be government action/plans to achieve this "Car-Lite City" vision. 1. Reduce COE Quota (OCS) 2. Increase Tax (Road Tax, PARF, ARF) 3. Increase ERP Charges 4. ???
  5. Source: https://mothership.sg/2022/02/erp-rates-aye-cte-rise/ Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) rates will be raised at 10 gantries along two expressways, said Land Transport Authority (LTA) in a news release on Feb. 10. Due to easing of restrictions With the easing of workplace restrictions from Jan. 1 2022, where 50 per cent of those who can work from home are allowed to return to the office, traffic has built up at certain stretches on the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE) and Central Expressway (CTE), said LTA. To manage congestion at these locations, ERP rates will rise by S$1 at the following gantries during the specified time periods: The adjustment will take effect from Feb. 14. Traffic speeds generally optimal Following this adjustment, ERP will be charged at 7 locations, compared to 29 locations pre-Covid, said LTA. LTA noted that traffic speeds have remained generally optimal on all arterial roads, including those within the Central Business District. This is based on LTA’s monitoring of traffic conditions in January 2022, following its latest review of Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) rates. ERP charges will thus remain at S$0 at these locations until the next review, and rates for other previously announced time-slots and gantries remain unchanged. LTA added that it will continue to monitor traffic speeds and congestion levels closely and assess if ERP rates need to be further adjusted as safe management measures continue to evolve.
  6. Due to the pandemic, ERP charges were suspended for some time. With the pandemic under control, ERP charges have been reinstated with a heavier price...literally! And for this group of motorists, they decided to pull a stunt to save the extra dollar: What Happened? A group of local and Malaysian motorcyclists, in addition to a pair of heavy vehicles, decided to pull up at the shoulder of a slip road towards an expressway to save themselves a couple of dollars by avoiding ERP charges. As the heavy vehicles were oversized, they obstructed the path of other motorists entering the expressway and slowed traffic along the slip road. The cam vehicle travelling on the slip road towards the expressway was undoubtedly frustrated at the inconsiderate acts of these individuals and blasted his horn at them while driving past them. Back in those pre-pandemic days, waiting at the road shoulder for the closure of an ERP gantry was a relatively common sight, especially in places where ERP charges can be as costly as $3 per entry. However, this trend died down when ERP charges were suspended due to COVID-19. Now with ERP charges back in operation, would we witness more of these inconsiderate acts? Netizens' Comments Quite a savage comment if you ask me😰 No thank you, sir! Avoid ERP charges, just to kena summon😐 ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news, and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community. Join us today!
  7. No one likes to pay for Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) charges, and sometimes it's funny to see how a simple system that helps regulate traffic flow has the potential to cause so much frustration for people like this Hiace driver. Watch the video here: This incident occurred at ERP 42 on the slip road from the Pan Island Expressway (PIE) to the Central Expressway (CTE). What happened? As the cam car approaches the slip road towards an ERP gantry, a Toyota Hiace can be seen hitting his brakes abruptly before coming to a halt just before the gantry. This dangerous action from the Hiace driver caused the cam car to react with an emergency brake as well. Shortly after, the Hiace driver turns on his hazard light. The cam car proceeds to overtake the Hiace and carry on with his journey, only for the Hiace driver to drive off. Possibilities At first glance, it seems as though the Hiace driver was attempting to avoid ERP payment by waiting for the ERP timer to end. However, a closer look at the ERP timing disregards the initial intent of the Hiace driver's action. Instead, it is highly likely that the Hiace driver either forgot to insert his stored-value card, or he was swapping an insufficient stored-value card with one that has sufficient value into his IU. Nevertheless, actions like this should not be condoned. Just pay the $10 fine or "administrative fee" and take it as a lesson learnt. Netizens' comments Modern problems require modern solutions 😎 Do or die, Hiace driver gonna get slapped with a fine.

  9. No ERP Rates Until End-Jul 2020, Drivers Heave Sighs Of Relief source: https://mustsharenews.com/erp-rates-jul/ No ERP Rates Until End-Jul 2020 After LTA Review Good news for drivers — Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) gantries will remain shut until 26 Jul 2020 following a review, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said on Monday (22 Jun). Due to optimal traffic speeds on expressways as well as arterial roads, drivers won’t have to pay any ERP tax until the next rate review. The next review ends on the 4th week of Jul. ERP rates review started after ‘Circuit Breaker’ LTA started a review of ERP rates on 2 Jun, after Phase 1 began following the ‘Circuit Breaker’. They wanted to know if they had to adjust rates based on traffic during this transition period. For now, their answer is a resounding ‘no’, and drivers won’t have to divert their routes based on ERP taxes at least until the 4th week of Jul, when the next review concludes. Any new rates will take effect on 27 Jul. Enjoy zero rates while they last While drivers are doubtlessly hoping for the retirement of the ERP as a whole, the rates are subjected to monthly reviews at the moment. If the economy gets back to where it once was, traffic congestion may follow. Currently, cars are reaching optimal speeds, meaning there is little to no congestion on the roads. This is presumably due to the fact that most workers are still asked to telecommute during Phases 1 and 2. However, this may change in future as we continue to reopen the economy and workers go back to workplaces. For now, what we can do is enjoy the zero rates and pray that the next review yields similar results.
  10. Now this is pretty high level stuff. We have yet to see anyone try escaping ERP charges like this Malaysian biker did. Posted on ROADS.sg and COMPLAINT SINGAPORE's Facebook page is a clip of a Malaysian biker trying to 'siam' the ERP gantry by riding off road. The video is pretty self explanatory as we can see the Gantry on the slip road from the PIE merging into the CTE towards Ang Mo Kio, with the Motorcyclist slowly bumping along on the grass. That is some commitment there for sure, we reckon.
  11. Hi guys my Erp IU failed. Can i just drive up to Viacom to replace it and how long will it take pls?
  12. Just wondering if you are using an IU cover to conceal your cash card. I am not using one and while I am driving a friend's car that having the cover, I find it quite inconvenience. 1) can't see the deduction and remaining amount properly 2) can't remove the card easily 3) doesn't the cover hint that a card is in there?
  13. Hi guys, my IU came with the new car and is about 1 year old. Recently after deduction of fee from exiting a HDB carpark, the IU start to show Err SC. The strange thing is that it can still detect ezlink card/net flash pay. I have checked my Cashcard using a top up machine and I was able to read the balance so I assumed the Cashcard is working fine. Now I am still able to enter my season parking and able to pay for parking using ezlink card. Anyone encountered this before? I am contemplating to change the IU a not as next year, the new IU will be introduced. I don't wanna waste time going to LTA. On the other hand, as my job requires me to run around Singapore and I know some car park only accepts the old school chip cashcard. Zzz. Uploaded a video to show what I mean.

  15. Testing of Future Traffic Management Systems Commences at Major Traffic Nodes The Land Transport Authority (LTA) will be testing the efficacy of Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) camera systems and Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) beacons at various locations along expressways and major thoroughfares from today until 2019. The use of ANPR technology will facilitate enforcement, while DSRC beacons will also be installed in some areas to enhance positioning accuracy in Singapore’s highly urbanised environment. These tests will enable LTA to determine the performance and reliability of such technologies under various real-life environmental and traffic conditions for future traffic management systems which will leverage Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) technology. 2. These technologies do not require heavy physical infrastructure and will be mounted on existing roadside infrastructure such as overhead bridges, overhead gantry signages, lamp posts, as well as EMAS gantries. Please refer to Annex A for the details of these locations and an example of the equipment that will be mounted on existing roadside infrastructure. 3. Testing equipment will also be mounted onto vehicles, which will be deployed at localised areas such as Tuas South from April 2018, before expanding island-wide for testing. Please refer to Annex B for an example of the equipment that will be mounted onto vehicles.

  16. as announced in the news, ERP 2.0 charged by KM will be rolled out in 2020. time to take public transport?
  17. Saw the sign board that Bradell to AMK Ave 1 will be closed from 12mn to 5am on14 & 15 Feb for gantry launching. ERP gantry ???
  18. As above. I don't usually travel around this period of time. But when I did yesterday, it was very crowded for the time stipulated on CTE. At the back of my head was wondering...... "who are really these ppl driving on the road at this hour? Aren't they suppose to be at work?" I personally took off yesterday to attend to some personal matters. So how about the rest? Outdoor sales, delivery, construction trucks, taxis, insurance agents, tai tai heading for tea-break?? Or everybody just like me took off on the same day to do some personal errands?
  19. The Jakarta provincial government is expected to begin an intensive public campaign to educate motorists on its Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) system in the next few months. The city's administration wants to implement ERP by the end of 2015. It has been studying the system to reduce traffic congestion since 2006. "We have prepared the concept for an intensive socialisation in two to three months' time on how the community can be informed of the ERP concept in a big and complete way," said Leo Armstrong, head of the ERP management unit at Jakarta Transportation Agency. "The government will lead the campaign." Two ERP gantries have been erected at two busy roads to test the system. Trials have already been completed and the local government says the results are encouraging. 'PUBLICITY STUNT' However, transport analysts are not convinced. "This is like a publicity stunt where they just put some fancy gantries in the middle of the road," said Yoda Adiwinarto, country manager at the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy. "The transport agency claimed that they want to try the effectiveness of the gantry; they want to try whether the on-board unit will work well. The problem is that all the on-board units that they installed were only for the official vehicles. So why bother putting the giant gantries on the public roads? Just try it somewhere nobody knows." The tender for the implementation of the ERP system is expected to be released in June. A one-day workshop will also be conducted among various stakeholders to discuss road pricing regulations. One of the challenges facing the implementation of ERP concerns motorists using small shortcut roads. Jakarta has a complicated network of roads which includes small shortcut roads. The provincial government is well aware that motorists may try to bypass the ERP by using shortcut roads. But while taking such a route may save some money, it may not save time because during peak hours shortcut roads are even more congested. Jakarta governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama has set a target for the ERP system to be completed by the end of 2015. Transport analysts believe this may not happen because of the lack of progress on the ground. In addition, the project has been hit by numerous delays over the years. MIXED VIEWS Motorists have mixed views about the effectiveness of electronic road pricing. "Sometimes electronic pricing can be a solution for the traffic but sometimes I think a collaboration system electronic and manual system could be integrated to be a solution in Jakarta because not all the people in Jakarta support electronics," said one motorist. "I think we need more, wider roads," added another motorist. "The ERP will not have any effect on congestion." Jakarta is struggling to keep vehicle population down, and it hopes electronic road pricing, which means higher costs for private vehicles, will help to solve the problem. At the same time, it is improving the public transport infrastructure to encourage motorists to turn to buses and trains instead.

  20. News Releases 1 Oct 2014 The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has called a tender today to develop Singapore’s next generation electronic road pricing system. The new system will be based on Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) technology. New Road Pricing System will be Satellite-based 2. Following an 18-month System Evaluation Test (SET) that concluded in December 2012, LTA has assessed that it is technologically feasible to develop a GNSS-based road pricing system in Singapore. This new system will overcome the constraints of physical gantries, which are costly and take up land space. In addition, it is not practical to continue with the current gantry system, which is almost two decades old and will become increasingly expensive and difficult to maintain. 3. Another key advantage of a GNSS-based system is the ability to implement distance-based pricing along the congested roads where road pricing is to be implemented. Distance-based pricing as opposed to the current gantry-based system, is more equitable as motorists will be charged proportionate to the distance travelled on these congested roads. Value-added services for motorists’ convenience 4. With the GNSS-based system, motorists can also look forward to an interactive and intelligent on-board unit (OBU) in their vehicle that can support a range of value-added services. These include real-time traffic information tailored to their location, as well as electronic payment for parking fees without today’s paper coupons. Off-peak car users can look forward to new policies which we are considering, which may allow them to pay only for using their vehicles for short periods rather than the whole day, or for using them only on uncongested roads. Three consortia shortlisted for upcoming tender 5. LTA has shortlisted three consortia to participate in the upcoming tender to develop the next generation road pricing system. They are NCS Pte Ltd & MHI Engine System Asia Pte Ltd, ST Electronics (Info-Comm Systems) Pte Ltd, and Watchdata Technologies Pte Ltd & Beijing Watchdata System Co Ltd. 6. The contract to design and develop the system is expected to be awarded in the second half of 2015. LTA aims to implement the system from around 202 LTA Press Release http://app.lta.gov.sg/apps/news/page.aspx?c=2&id=40e3e181-37ff-4d65-a8c8-3ed2f6ac99b0
  21. Authorities say that ERP is to control traffic conditions to optimise traffic flow. And that is why they installed evening ERP so that we can all stagger our journey timings home. Would you support no evening ERP (maybe except for Orchard Road area) and run the high risk of being stuck in traffic jams or stick with existing situation?
  22. At long last, after more than a decade of discussion, tests and trials, GPS (global positioning system) satellite-tracked ERP (electronic road pricing) is deemed to be technically feasible here. This makes Singapore the fi rst country in the world to fi nd an “eye-in-the-sky” solution to “pricing” the multitude of vehicles that zip through its thick urban jungle of high-rise buildings and capillary network of roads. All others have failed – or at least, none have arrived at an accuracy level that is acceptable, or devised a model that is cost effective. Germany is about the only place where GPS satellite technology is used for road tolls, but that is isolated to heavy trucks on its autobahns. Even though GPS technology has been around for decades, with onboard navigation now as commonplace as Bluetooth connectivity, a pricing application is a different ball game. The main hurdle has been the “canyon effect” posed by a city’s dense conglomerate of tall structures, which can muddle up signals and lead to incorrect pricing. Considering Singapore’s low tolerance for errors, the conclusion that satellite ERP is now feasible is a remarkable milestone. The development will not only allow us to dismantle the 70-plus ugly blue-and-white gantries that dot our cityscape, it will also allow us access to a host of urban transport solutions that are currently manual and inefficient. These include coupon-less street parking, flexible tariffs for Off-Peak Car usage, recovery of stolen vehicles, and “live” traffi c information feeding an intelligent navigation system (perhaps one that tells you the cost and time of a choice of routes). In fact, such a technology can also be adapted to enforce the law in illegal parking, “catch” certain traffi c violations, and even determine motor insurance premiums, which are adjusted according to the way you drive (i.e. the risk factor). But satellite ERP’s main purpose is more effi cient road pricing, with its killer application being distance-based charging. This is where the Singapore leadership gets to put its political will to the test again.Will the government be bold enough to implement charging-by-distance-driven? Or will satellite ERP be yet another high-tech toy for Land Transport Authority engineers to “play” with? Already, we seem to be witnessing a reluctance to use the gantry-based system to control congestion. The maximum Cashcard deduction of $5 is negligible compared to the depreciation rate of an everyday car (about $30 per day). The preference has been to use upfront measures to keep our roads relatively clear, such as the vehicle quota system and punitive registration taxes. Upfront expenses, once paid, are forgotten, but a beeping in-vehicle unit (IU) is a daily and unpopular reminder. Which is probably why we often see owners of $400,000 limousines stopping by the road shoulder to wait out the remaining minutes of an ERP period. Or for that matter, those who park illegally because they loathe using a 50-cent parking coupon. So, a distance-based congestion pricing system that charges, say, 50 cents or one dollar per kilometre, could be even more unpopular with these people. They also won’t have the opportunity to park illegally or park without paying any more. It would be a shame if the capability of the second-generation ERP system isn’t fully exploited. It would be like buying a Ferrari, only to use it for grocery runs. This article was written by Christopher Tan, consulting editor for Torque.
