Ajman - Parking lot supervisors are working on two shifts to ensure that fees are paid on time.



The Municipality and Planning Department in Ajman (MPDA) on Wednesday announced that 6,000 new paid parking spaces were created in the emirate this year.

Dr Eng. Mohammed Ahmed bin Omair Al Muhairi, the Executive Director of the Infrastructure Development Sector at the MPDA, said the civic body had prepared an integrated plan for additional paid parking spaces.

He said the paid service is aimed at smooth parking of vehicles and preventing misuse of parking spaces.

Dr Al Muhairi said that the MPDA created additional paid parking spaces at Al Nuaimiya Street, Al Salam Street, Sheikh Zayed Street, Sheikh Rashid Bin Saeed Street, Al Ittihad Street and also in the emirate’s heritage neighbourhood.

He pointed out that the civic body received directives from Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, the chairman of the MPDA, to provide a suitable environment for investors and community members to enjoy all the convenient services.

Mr Hamid Al Falasi, the head of the parking department at the MPDA, said the civic body provided users with multiple online payment channels to pay their parking fees in a bid to reduce the use of traditional mechanism following the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) outbreak.

Al Falasi hinted at the MPDA’s attempt to increase online payment channels and dispense with traditional methods to pay parking fees.

“Parking lot supervisors are working on two shifts to ensure that fees are paid on time. The morning and evening shifts are between 8 am and 1:00pm and from 5:00pm to 9:00pm, respectively,” he added.
