Why do we need Electronic Road Pricing (ERP)?
The ERP revenue collected goes to the Government’s Consolidated Fund to fund programmes that benefit Singaporeans. The annual amount collected is much less than what the government spends on road improvement projects. For example, the total amount collected for Financial Year 2009 and 2010 is about $149 million and $159 million respectively. In comparison, we have invested more to improve our road networks. The recently completed Woodsville Interchange Upgrading project costs $130 million and the Marina Coastal Expressway, which is currently under construction will cost $4.1 billion. ERP operating hours and charges are set based on traffic conditions. The amounts collected are a function of ERP operating hours and charges, as well as the traffic volume or number of vehicles passing through.
