Source : The Sunday Times, July 6, 2008

FIVE new Electronic Road Pricing gantries along the Singapore River will go live on Monday evening.

They are at Eu Tong Sen Street, New Bridge Road, South Bridge Road and Fullerton Road in both directions.

The new gantries, which will bring the total number of gantries in Singapore to 65, will charge $2 from 6pm to 7.30pm and $1 from 7.30pm to 8pm.

The Land Transport Authority has said that the gantries are meant to cut through traffic that use the City Hall and Marina Centre area to get to other places.

Two of the five gantries, at Eu Tong Sen Street and Fullerton Road (towards Suntec City) will also operate on Saturdays from 12.30pm to 8pm. They will charge $2.

Besides the new gantries, higher rates and extended operation hours will also kick in at gantries in the Central Business District from on Monday.
