I read with great interest over the latest article about the Ministry of Transport calling for tender of proposals to replace the current ERP gantry system. The minister of transport reasoned that it is getting more costly to install new ERP gantries, hence they are looking for more ways to lower the cost.
I’m not sure if the Minister realizes that perhaps he is missing the point. If his ministry has to keep on installing ERP gantries to keep up with the increasing number of cars/traffic, perhaps he should look into
One of the suggestions put forth in the article is the use of the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) to calculate the distance travelled by road users and charge them accordingly.
