(MENAFN) Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) plans to introduce phase 3 of its Salik toll gates system on April 15, Arabian Business reported.

RTA said two new toll gates will be set up, the Al Mamzar Toll Gate at Al Mamzar Bridge on Al Ittihad Road and the Airport Tunnel Toll Gate, bringing the total number of Salik gates in the city to six.

Mattar Al Tayer, RTA chairman and executive director, said that Al Ittihad Road is considered one of the busiest roads in Dubai with about 260,000 vehicles using it every day.

Al Tayer said congestion levels on the road remained below international standards despite the RTA investing around USD272.2 million in building flyovers and additional tunnels

Salik gates were launched in July 2007 under a plan to cut down congestion on Dubai's roads. RTA expects Salik revenues to reach USD1.36 billion this year.
