They are operational usually during peak hours, such as when people travel to work or back home at the end of the day. There are over 75 ERP gantries situated on three types of routes: expressways, roads leading into the city/central business district, and arterial roads.
ERP rates are reviewed every quarter and adjusted during the June and December school holiday period, based on the traffic conditions at the time.
ERP rates are set generally in periods of 30 minutes and are adjusted to keep traffic moving at an optimal speed range of 20 to 30 km/hour on arterial roads and 45-65km/hour on expressways. That means if you drive during peak hours, you are likely to pay higher rates. In addition, ERP charges are also determined by the type and size of vehicle – bigger vehicles pay more.
