This after drivers complain and question why ERP will rise to an arbitrary $6 level next month.

ERP rates will have more rationale.

ERP rates will have more rationale.

After it was announced that at least four gantries will have their ERP raised to an arbitrary $6 mark, Singaporean drivers are complaining that there is no rationale why should congestion tax be this price.

To combat this perception, the transport authorities have decided to lend credence to the benchmark by making ERP rates $48 by the end of the year.

The $48 level is to go hand-in-hand with Singapore’s 48th anniversary this year.

Singaporeans interviewed said they are grateful for this explanation to dispel notions of arbitrariness.

One local, Boh Hua Qia, said: “Thank goodness the authorities didn’t raise it to $90.”
