Motorists paying for parking by SMS will have to use new parking codes ‘C’ and ‘D’ for mParking in non-commercial parking areas where signboards with new codes have been set up.
Three new bus routes were launched in Dubai, serving communities such as Al Nahda, International City, Festival City, Oud Metha, Mankhool and the Dubai Mall area.
The Road and Transport Authority (RTA) has marked out every parking spot, that was free, under the paid parking zones. “This is a residential area and it’s unfair to make us pay for the parking. We have two cars, and the building allocates only one free parking slot. We are now forced to pay up,” protested a resident at the Al Safa building in the area.
The initial phase of the plan includes street naming in six areas: Umm Suqeim 1, Umm Suqeim 2, Umm Suqeim 3, Al Sufouh 1, Al Sufouh 2, and Dubai Marina, and is set to be completed before the end of this year. The 2nd phase comprises naming streets in 6 new areas, namely: Al Nahda , Muhaisna, Oud Mateena, Nad Al Sheba, Al Thaniyah, and Dubai Investments Park, and the phase is set to finish by the end of 2013.
Maitha bin Edai, CEO of traffic and roads at the RTA, said: “The great development in Dubai’s urban and real-estate sector requires a fast and accurate street naming system that facilitates mobility and accessibility. It will help people in narrating addresses of their homes, offices and shops. Studies have shown the public can recall and retrieve names more easily than numbers.
