Dubai Municipality (DM) is preparing to introduce a road toll system as early as 2005, Nasser Saaed, general co-ordinator for the Dubai light rail transport (LRT) project and director of DM’s roads department, told MEED’s Middle East Rail Projects conference on 12 December. The project is part of a larger scheme aimed at improving traffic flow and reducing congestion in the emirate. Another, larger element of the integrated traffic scheme will be the estimated $4,000 million LRT project, which is presently being tendered (see Cover Story).
