    might as well implement 24 hr ERP lah.. CTE is forever heavily traffic congested. Better still.. close the whole darn CTE and you wun have anymore congested CTE!

    i think their excuse to ease suggestion is juz a lame cover up. Might as well ban vehicles from entering....short and sweet. No need to involve $...but they always must. I keep hearing taxi drivers' "predictions of doom" and rants bout those darn gantries.

    I dun see the sense of paying ERP when u are leaving the CBD area....not sure when ERP would 'invade' our neighbourhoods ....sheesh.

    No need to ban, just make the expressway to become tollway, and charge drivers the toll fee, similar to Malaysia, Thailand, China, USA, Europe, then no one will complaint. Its funny to drive on "expressway" in slow speed.

    it is so that people will do OT and boost productivity
    only after 8pm then can go home.

    if you drive on ECP and AYE in the evenings you will also know that it is jammed as well. CTE is just a start ... ...

    i think they might as well put a meter like the taxis that charge how much we move... in singapore owning a car is similar to renting 1 already and with this... i think i am now even worse off... its like driving a cab, den chauffering myself & family...

    Maybe the future is like the movie Minority Report....everyone and anyone can be tracked as long as they have eyes or one eye......ads and tracking system everywhere scans the retina....you cannot escape...

    i can either take CTE or PIE home from NUS to macpherson.
    PIE is less jammed, but the clementi road leading to PIE is.
    AYE -CTE - upp serangoon exit will be a better choice (if there's no jam).

    http://app.lta.gov.sg/corp_press_content.asp?start=1253

    LTA has tried to ease the jam, NEL to encourage pple to take public transport, extra lane at braddell, and now they've been building the payalebar expressway (which is next to my house), it runs UNDER the canal near my area, damn tough/noisy/dirty job.

    Guess everyone just likes to complain, i can't wait for the ERP to start and hope it effects are good (as I don't have to pay:P), but fear the upp serangoon exit will explode with vehicles!

    LTA already earning loads from road users, they just wish to allow better flowing traffic to those willing to pay. Given a 10kmh jam, the extra petrol earned might earn LTA the extra (petrol) tax = to ERP earned?

    now, if i tell my paying clients,
    'i really tried to give u beautiful pics on ur wedding,
    but its stressful n u r ugly.
    so i have to charge u more
    without assuring anything,
    in fact it will most probably be worse off.'
    i will be slaughtered by them unless
    i m a monopoly.

    if lta is truly trying to help,
    they should not raise just a bit,
    pain but bearable sum of $.

    it should charge $10 per entry of our expressway,
    BUT, payable in pro rota to ur speed travel over the speed desinate.

    eg. if i tracel at an average speed of 30km/h
    over the stretch thats meant to be 90km/h,
    i pay 1/3 of $10.
    the slower i go, the lesser i pay.

    to jesser,
    thanks for this thread.
    as i normally rely on CTE but i don't usually carry
    the cash card(3 lost this yr),
    big headache now.
    got to remember night also need
