These locations include prominent expressways such as Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE), Central Expressway (CTE), Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE), and Pan-Island Expressway (PIE), strategically selected to alleviate congestion during peak hours.

Revised ERP Rates

The revised ERP rates will be applicable during designated time slots, primarily in the morning between 7:30 am and 10:00 am.
