The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has winded up a vehicular traffic movement plan during Eid al-Fitr holiday to cope with the needs of all community members, provide best-in-class services and enable the public to avail themselves of private/public transit means in a streamlined and hassle-free manner.
Parking will be free across all paid parking zones in Dubai, except the Deira Fish Market, on December 2 and 3, in celebration of the 41st UAE National Day. The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has also announced that its customer service centres and vehicle testing centres will remain closed on December 2 and 3.
The Roads & Transport Authority (RTA) has announced the timing of various services to be delivered during Eid Al-Adha holiday at Customer Service Centers, paid parking zones, public buses, Dubai Metro, marine transit modes, driving schools & institutes, and vehicles testing & registration centers.
Dubai Metro’s Red Line opened in September 2010, bringing 52 kilometres of travel options for Dubai residents and visitors. This month, the 22km Green Line opens with 16 of its 18 new stations operating, along with transfer stations Khalid Bin Al Waleed and Uniion Square, promising easier access to even more of the emirate’s best views and venues.
Use of private vehicles in the Central Business Districts (CBDs) of Dubai is likely to be limited once the Green Line of the Dubai Metro becomes operational after August next year, said a senior official. "The move is part of our plan to ease traffic congestion in the old city which is the hub of commercial activities and has always witnessed massive traffic jams," said the official at the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).
Dubai’s metro inched closer to full operation this weekend with the opening of seven more stations, but despite a limited service, construction delays and annoying carriage music it has managed to win over car addicts and prove doubters wrong.
