erp gantry quiz

one way to make sure motorists cannot escape paying erp charges during the operational hours is to have two gantries located 150m apart along the same stretch of road. if the first one fails to 'catch' the motorist, then there is the second one to act as a 'safely catch'.

also those who time themselves to reach the gantry just seconds before it is activated will have a surprise awaiting them.

1 along which stretch of road are these gantries located?

2 what is the real reason for erecting the second gantry?

This one quite easy lah as I pass by this area quite often.

(i) Along Upper Bukit Timah Road besides Hume Park area.

(ii) Due to some roadworks, probably related to downtown line, gantry has to be moved south.

But btw, any idea is the gantry ever operational in the first place ?

keith, i think the gantry is operational between 8.00 a.m. and 8.30 a.m., half an hour only.
