The parking ticket machines have been installed on Shaikh Khalifa, Shaikh Rashid bin Humaid and Masfoot roads. The total cost of the project is Dh4.5 million.

Vehicles belonging to people with special needs, and those of police and ambulances are exempted from the parking fees.

"We have also installed 328 signboards informing the motorists about the areas where paid parking has come into effect and guiding them to the location of the parking ticket machines. Motorists will be charged for parking their vehicles from 8am to 1pm and from 4pm to 9pm on these three main roads in the first phase of the project ," Muhiary said.

The details of the second phase would be announced later.

Asked about the fees for parking on the three roads, he said: "We will charge the same charges as in Dubai and Sharjah. We have signed the agreement with the same company that executed the paid parking project in Dubai and Sharjah."

Muhairy added that 26 inspectors are already employed to ensure that motorists are paying the parking fee. Anyone found having parked his/her vehicle without displaying the parking ticket will be fined Dh150.

"People interested in attaining annual membership should pay Dh2,350. Parking cards in three payment categories are available — Dh30, Dh50 and Dh100."
