LTA said that rates for the other previously announced timeslots and gantries remain unchanged.
"With these adjustments, the number of locations and timeslots charged is still lower than the number charged pre-COVID," LTA said. The authority added that it will continue to monitor traffic speeds and congestion levels closely and assess if ERP rates need to be further adjusted.
The ERP rate was previously revised in February, when ERP rates rose by $1 at five locations from 13 February.
In November 2022, the LTA had announced the increase of ERP rates – also by S$1 – at three locations over five time periods.
