Central Core District

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.

The congestion charge in Milan was first introduced in Cerchia del Bastioni (historical center) in 2012 to reduce road traffic flow. The Scheme seeks to improve public transport networks, raise funds for soft mobility infrastructures and improve the quality of life by reducing traffic accidents, uncontrolled parking as well as noise and air pollutions.
