RTA quiet on Salik expansions

The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) still remains silent about a massive expansion of the Salik road toll scheme, despite a report issued which quotes an unnamed RTA official saying Chairman Mattar Al Tayer has requested a full report on a possible second phase of Salik. An article that appeared in the Arabic press this week said the RTA will be posting new toll gates on the roads of Dubai.

These gates are speculated to be placed
on Maktoum Bridge, Shindagha Tunnel, Business Bay Bridge and the Floating Bridge.

Drivers have to pay 4 dirhams each time they pass through the toll gates located on Garhoud Bridge and on Sheikh Zayed Road.

Salik is expected to bring in more than $160m during its first year of operation.
