    Alternatively, go office after ERP and return home before ERP also can.

    Wow....what a news...anyway....what's new with Gov't policies. Everything is increasing. If you ever travel on CTE and ECP...you could have noticed that they have laid new layer of tar...this could be one of the factors of the increment. The other factor is of course going into the big men's pockets.

    walk or cycle?

    if take public transport, in the end it will be the same...for me, it is still more cost efficient to drive, just need to know how to avoid ERP and walk a bit for cheap parking

    Actually I still dont understand the logic of ERP, the charge is so cheap that everyone can afford it so everyone still use expressway in rush hour, it does not solve the traffic jam problem. Maybe need to increase the charge 10x then can really solve the traffic jam problem.

    then public transports that ply routes that cross ERP gantries will just pass the cost back to commuters. another reason for price hike.

    Also, the ERP system was to reduce the road tax to a pay-as-you-use scheme.

    that's why they implement ERP... once people acclimatise to the price... it's back to square one... so have a chance to up the price again.

    Dude, the road resurfacing is for the IMF meeting in September. It's not only the ECP that is resurfaced, you'lll see it all over Nicoll Highway, Esplanade Drive, Raffles Quay all the way to Shenton Way. If I am not wrong, there are also some roads near hotels where the roads are resurfaced.
