Dubai's e-majlis on Twitter: Log on to share your traffic problems today


By Majorie van Leijen

Do you think you have a permanent solution to traffic congestion on Sheikh Zayed Road? Have you noticed an error on a major intersection? Or have you been waiting to vent out about an infrastructural miscalculation en route to your office?

You will have to hold back no longer.

Today, for the first time, the Customer’s Council of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) will take place in an e-majlis on Twitter.

The aim is to ‘transparently communicate’ with the public.

Under the motto ‘Improving our Services’ the RTA has invited Dubai residents to participate in a ‘live’ Twitter session with the Head of the Customer Council.

For two hours, residents may tweet their questions, remarks, suggestions, and ideas about RTA services, to which the person in charge will try to respond adequately. More info
