ERP Woes

It never rains but it pours for the car drivers in Singapore.

ERP woes are piling on top of the relentless spike in petrol pump prices. I shall try to put the latest reviews in a nutshell.

1. Driving to CBD just got more expensive on weekday afternoons and it will extended to 8pm instead of 7pm previously. (Maybe you have to start reserving seats at the swanky restaurants from 830pm now.) The charging structure also just got more complicated.....


2. Heading to Orchard area on Saturday? Make your trip earlier and enter before 11am because ERP will strike you earlier instead of 12pm previously...


3. 5 new gantries have been set up along Fullerton Road, South Bridge Road, New Bridge Road and Eu Tong Sen Street (Bringing the total number of gantries to 65). This will cut up the CBD into 2 areas : The commercial area around Raffles Place and the shopping area around Bugis-Marina. Be prepared to pay if you are traveling across the zones on a weekday evening.

MORE BAD NEWS: Now you have to pay on Saturdays 12.30pm - 8pm to enter the shopping area of Bugis-Marina. Exit Marina Square, enter Vivocity on a Saturday afternoon...



4. The next review is due on Nov 3rd, and there are currently 6 planned gantries that will be sprouting out on that day, bringing it to a total of 71 gantries. So like it or not, stay tuned for the next update.
