No charges on Abu Dhabi toll gates from October 15 to January 1, 2020


Trial period set from October 15 to January 1, 2020 for traffic tariff system

Abu Dhabi: A free trial period for the road toll gates in Abu Dhabi will start from October 15 to January 1, 2020, it was announced on Sunday by authorities.

The new traffic tariff system will be implemented without any charges, in order to give road users more time to complete the registration procedures in the system.

This will also give them enough time to organise the times of their daily trips, the statement added.

The road toll system was first announced in July, and officials said four toll gates will become operational from October 15.

They also said at the time that user accounts will be created automatically for Abu Dhabi-registered vehicles, and that the sign-up details will be sent by SMS to motorists.

However, last week, that they had not yet received the sign up details that would allow them to top up their toll payment accounts.

From January 1, 2020

Senior citizens, retired, people of determination and citizens with limited income are exempted from toll gate fees.

Monthly payment of tollgate fees for individual vehicles have been set as follows:

  • A total monthly amount of Dh200 for the first car
  • Dh150 for the second one
  • Dh100 for each additional vehicle

The maximum daily fee is Dh16.

A few days earlier, the department decided to move the Musaffah Bridge toll gate in order to prevent motorists from dodging the road tariff by passing through the residential area of Bawabat Abu Dhabi.

This would have also caused heavy traffic congestion in the area.

The other three toll gates are located on all bridges to Abu Dhabi island — Sheikh Zayed bridge, Maqta, and Sheikh Khalifa bridges.
