    ..... the problem is I'm already in the CBD area and the gantry is juz next to my area juz going out of my area I had to pay don't really justify. It actually meant to reduce vehicles going towards suntec right from the start of orchard, but those already inside and wanna move around are affected too. If you are in my shoe u will understand how fustrating it is.

    I would say, make the ERP at Orchard Road as high as possible, so there is less traffic along Orchard Road, the air will be better, the noise will be lower, the ppl will be happier.

    I'm riding. Riding suppose to be cheaper, but now it's comparable to cars. Sometimes it's quite fustrating to see all cars on the expressway with juz 1 person inside, the oil price keeps increasing and the amount of oil in the world is decreasing, but ppl are still wasting resources.

    That will be perfect, make Orchard Road to Suntec a hugh walking street, no cars, no pollution, no engine noise.

    It's on purpose, if they push it up 5 times at one go, nobody will drive in except those claiming from companies/salespeople.

    If they push it up slowly, 10c per 2mths, it would reach 5 times as much in a year or two and everybody would still carry on driving in per norm. Pyschological effect.

    It's for the sake of the cash registers *ka ching!*
