5 new ERP gantries for motorists

Posted by jtsmyth8 on January 8, 2008

Motorists can expect to pay more over the next few months to use the roads when five new ERP gantries are up, many in the heart of residential areas. The gantries are in Upper Bukit Timah Road (outside Hume Park), Toa Payoh Lorong 6, Upper Boon Keng Road, Kallang Bahru Road and Geylang Bahru Road.

All except the ones in Toa Payoh Lorong 6 and Geylang Bahru Road have been completed.

The Land Transport Authority has not announced when these new gantries will be switched on, but already residents are concerned why their neighbourhoods are targetted.

Commenting on the gantry outside Hume Park, Bukit Timah resident Mr Burven Lee, 43, said: ‘The road here does get jammed up. But will a gantry solve the problem?’ (story)
