In a bid to enhance traffic management and alleviate congestion on major roadways, Salik Company PJSC, Dubai’s exclusive tollgate operator, has revealed plans to install two new toll gates in Dubai. The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has formally assigned Salik the responsibility for optimizing traffic flow at strategic locations based on extensive traffic movement studies.

The two new toll gates in Dubai are slated to be positioned at crucial junctures—Business Bay Crossing on Al Khail Road and Al Safa South on Sheikh Zayed Road between Al Meydan Street and Umm Al Sheif Street. These locations have been strategically chosen to address specific traffic challenges identified through comprehensive studies conducted by the RTA.

Salik, which already operates eight toll gates across Dubai, will see its total number increase to ten with the addition of these new toll gates in Dubai. The existing toll gates are strategically placed at Al Barsha, Al Garhoud Bridge, Al Maktoum Bridge, Al Mamzar South, Al Mamzar North, Al Safa, Airport Tunnel, and Jebel Ali.

The two new toll gates in Dubai are scheduled to commence operations in November this year, marking a significant expansion of the city’s toll infrastructure. Each time a vehicle passes through a Salik toll gate, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology detects the vehicle and scans the Salik sticker tag, automatically deducting a toll fee of Dh4 from the motorist’s prepaid toll account.

One notable feature of the upcoming toll gate at Al Safa South is its integration with the existing Al Safa gate (Al Safa North). Motorists passing through both toll gates in Dubai within one hour in the same direction will be charged only once, akin to the setup at Al Mamzar North and South toll gates.

The RTA anticipates that the Business Bay Crossing toll gate will contribute to a 12 to 15 percent improvement in traffic congestion on Al Khail Road.
