ABU DHABI 13 September 2019: The working of toll gates at four points on major bridges leading into the city of Abu Dhabi were explained to Al Mushrif community.
The Majalis Affairs Office at the Abu Dhabi Crown Prince’s Court in coordination with the Department of Transport – Abu Dhabi (DoT), and the Integrated Transport Centre (ITC), organisedthe lecture entitled ‘The Abu Dhabi Toll System’ at ‘Majlis Al Mushrif’.
The system will be activated on 15th October to reduce traffic congestion and raise the efficiency of the transport sector in Abu Dhabi in line with the Abu Dhabi Surface Transport Master Plan.
The lecture aimed to inform the community about the mechanisms of the new toll system and introduce its services. The Al Mushrif lecture is part of a series, said Wam.
The toll system is one of a series of strategic projects aimed at encouraging the general public to utilize Abu Dhabi’s public transport network, reduce the use of private vehicles and encourage carpooling, thus contributing to reducing traffic congestion, raising the efficiency of the transport sector and achieving ITC’s vision of integrated and sustainable transport for a better life.
The toll system operates thorough an advanced electronic payment system and vehicles will be identified by their plate number without having to install a pre-paid sticker on the front windshield.
