ERP in Hong Kong
Electronic Road Pricing (“ERP”) is a traffic management tool to alleviate localised road traffic congestion. It has been successfully implemented in many countries including Italy (Milan), Republic of Malta (Valletta), Singapore, Sweden (Gothenburg and Stockholm) and the United Kingdom (Durham and London).
ERP is based on the “user pays” principle. Motorists are only required to pay when they use roads within the charging area during the specified time. In general, ERP can bring about environmental, economic and social benefits to the community.
