Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) is an electronic system of road pricing. It uses a dedicated short-range radio communication system to deduct ERP charges from smart-cards inserted in the in-vehicle units of vehicles each time they pass a pricing point when the system is in operation. The pay-when-you-use principle helps make motorist more aware of the true cost of driving. This way, road usage can be optimised.

Morning ERP on KPE southbound after Defu Flyover

ERP gantries were constructed as part of the Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE) to provide the option of road pricing should traffic conditions along the north east corridor worsen with future development. As announced in September 2016, LTA has been reviewing the need for ERP to manage traffic congestion along the stretch of the southbound KPE between Tampines Expressway and Airport Road during the morning peak hours on weekdays.

The latest quarterly review shows that traffic speeds along this stretch have consistently remained below the optimal speed range of 45km/h to 65km/h for the last 2.5 years, dipping to as low as 30 km/h. To manage this congestion, LTA will activate the ERP gantry situated at KPE southbound after Defu Flyover during morning peak hours. The gantry will start operation from 8 May 2017.
