Several gantries along Singapore's major expressways will also be affected. These expressways are the Ayer Rajah Expressway, Central Expressway, East Coast Parkway, Marina Coastal Expressway and the Pan Island Expressway.
Several congested roads will also have their ERP rates reduced. These roads are Bendemeer Road, Woodsville Tunnel, Kallang Road and Thomson Road.
According to LTA, these revised rates are not permanent and will revert back to the pre-school holiday charges on 1 July 2019. The rates for other non-mentioned gantries will also remain unchanged during this period.
The next quarterly ERP rate review will take place in August 2019.
