Traffic easing on CTE

Posted by jtsmyth8 on November 5, 2007

Traffic flow on the southbound Central Expressway (CTE) showed some signs of improvement on Monday, possibly because motorists tried to avoid paying the record $5 to use certain slip roads. Motorists heading down the CTE from the Pan-Island Expressway in the morning paid a record $5 for using that route.

The increased charges at several Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) gantries kicked in on Monday as part of the third wide-scale ERP increase this year.

In particular, the gantry located at the PIE slip road to the CTE went up from $4.50 to $5 between 8.30am and 9am.

The Land Transport Authority said that traffic speeds on the CTE (southbound) showed some improvement on Monday and was ‘smooth flowing’ during the ERP charging hours. (story)
