New design of ERP gantries draw praise from motorists
By Aw Cheng Wei
MOTORISTS are giving the thumbs up to ERP charges - at least the way the amount payable is displayed on gantries.
Snazzy colourful icons of vehicles and the amount motorists have to pay at various times are now revealed brightly in a panel at the top of the gantry.

First unveiled on July 7 when five gantries downtown became operational, the new-style display has since been set up on 40 of 65 gantries in use.

By Nov 3, the panels, each costing about $65,000, will be on 70 gantries. This is when five more gantries will come onstream in places like Commonwealth Avenue, Jalan Bukit Merah and Alexandra Road.

Previously, the gantries flashed out only this fact - ERP in operation - with the fee displayed in a panel at the roadside, and that only for some gantries.

A spokesman for the Land Transport Authority said the fee payable can now be read 100m from the gantry.

So motorists will have an idea of what they will have to pay the next time they travel that way around that time.

Re: New design of ERP gantries draw praise from motorists

pls la... LTA is so propaganda. they say motorists are giving thumbs up. Show us some god damn facts and figures pls!!! at least some comments from motorists themselves la.... wat the hell is this man..... like that they can also come up with article saying "motorists give thumbs up to higher COE and road tax"

anyway is not as if put up this new sign board means we pay lesser right? beware... another ERP hike might surface to "offset" the cost of the signboard...
