First toll gate installed near Garhoud
By Daniel Bardsley, Staff Reporter
Dubai: The toll gate that will charge motorists when they cross Garhoud Bridge going towards Sharjah has been installed by Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority.
The RTA is currently installing a second toll gate at the bridge for those travelling in the opposite direction.
And toll gates are also being introduced close to Interchange Four of Shaikh Zayed Road near Mall of the Emirates, ready for the system to go live on July 1.
Once the system, which is called Salik, is activated, motorists will have to pay Dh4 each time they pass through a toll gate.

The toll gates will be tested before July 1 to ensure that they work properly, Maitha Obaid Bin Udai, chief executive of the Traffic and Roads Agency at Dubai Roads and Transport Authority, said yesterday.
