She said all efforts were being made at federal and local levels within the emirate to provide the best transport solutions and maintain mobility on the UAE roads. “Traffic congestion is among the daily difficulties faced by the residents of the UAE over the past few years,” she noted.

Referring to RTA’s participation in the International Conference and Exhibition of Positioning, Navigation and Timing Technologies held on September 11-12 in India, she said the agency had accorded top priority to keeping pace with the latest developments in the field of navigation technology.

The RTA was represented at the conference by a team headed by Engineer Salah Mohammed Al Marzouqi, Deputy Director of Traffic Department Intelligent Traffic System manager who highlighted Dubai's efforts to find solutions for the road obstacles.

Al Marzouqi said that while the earlier practice of expanding the road network by widening them, building tunnels and bridges was found to be a timely solution for the traffic obstacles, there was still a need to adopt new transportation and traffic management solutions.

Meanwhile, RTA won the award for Best Stand at the International Exhibition and Conference “Location 2006” organised recently in Abu Dhabi. The award was given to RTA for its display systems and items especially the “dalili” navigation system which provides drivers about all information they may need. The stand attracted a significant number of the exhibition visitors
