The department would implement the system in these areas if the need arises, he noted.

Additionally, the new system will decrease the number of vehicles that will use the four gates by approximately 4,000, thereby reducing traffic congestion in these areas.

Al Hamoudi said that the new toll system will deduct toll from each vehicle by scanning the number plate, and there would be no need to place tags on windscreens.
