Launch of Electronic Road Pricing Pilot Scheme's new dedicated website
     The Transport Department (TD) announced today (September 11) that a new dedicated website for the "Electronic Road Pricing Pilot Scheme in Central and its Adjacent Areas" has been launched with a view to promoting public understanding of the pilot scheme.
     Electronic road pricing (ERP) is a traffic management tool that addresses localised road traffic congestion. It seeks to reduce the number of vehicles within the charging area by charging them for using the roads therein, hence improving traffic conditions in the charging area.
     The TD commissioned a consultant to carry out an in-depth feasibility study on the pilot scheme at the end of 2017. The feasibility study includes carrying out a detailed analysis of the views collected during the Stage 1 public engagement activities in 2016, as well as formulating detailed options for the pilot scheme with reference to the latest traffic data, overseas experience and previous ERP study results, for seeking the views of the public and stakeholders.
     The new dedicated website of the pilot scheme outlines the concept of the scheme, and provides relevant information about the implementation of ERP in overseas cities. Members of the public are welcome to visit the dedicated website (www.erp.gov.hk).
