Just on the first day of the new Salik gates on the Dubai Sharjah highway, I feel the congestion has cleared a bit.

Traffic is flowing a little smoothly.

It will be appreciated if the RTA can actually adopt this strategy on other congested roads in Dubai. Deira in particular is always congested, but salik gates near the creek will sort that out.

Traffic will flow smoothly because the Salik toll will compel people to use public transport. It will be a very healthy option for people and also keep the pollution in check.

• With the introduction of two more Salik gates at Mamzar and Airport Tunnel, life for people living in Sharjah and working in Dubai has become miserable. It’s now long queues and hassle all the way.
