“Based on LTA’s monitoring of traffic conditions from end June to early July 2020, traffic speeds have remained optimal on all arterial roads and most expressways, except for some time periods on the Central Expressway (CTE),” LTA said.

The S$1 ERP rate will apply at the following gantries to manage congestion at these areas:
