“The project start will be started from the downtown (financial) district which houses the stock market, a number of banks and ministries,” he said, adding that from September, motorists will be charged Dh2 for an hour and a maximum Dh15 for the whole day for parking services.

“The project will put an end to the arbitrary occupation of parking spaces. Motorists who have parked their cars in the congested areas will be forced to move them out of,” he explained. “The prime objective goal of the pre-paid parking project is not to collect money, but to reduce traffic congestion,” he affirmed.
