Abu Dhabi’s Salik counterpart was supposed to be up and running earlier this year (2020) but will plan now to start working entirely in 2021.
As per a tweet posted on the official Abu Dhabi Media page, no road tolls have to be charged by commuters commuting to and from Abu Dhabi in 2020. A similar announcement was made related to Abu Dhabi Traffic Penalties Offer recently.
Initially a three-month grace period was introduced for motorists to allow people who did not have the ability to sign up for extra time to do so.
Although the Abu Dhabi toll gates are without a name yet, they are a network of toll gates located on four bridges that enter and exit the UAE capital.
The Abu Dhabi version will check its license plate instead of using a ‘tag’ to check and subtract funds from one’s account.
While it’s a few months away before the toll gates are turned up, going under a gate will cost AED 4 and will be free on Fridays and public holidays, once they’re operational.
