Fees, fines announced for road toll system in Abu Dhabi
Details revealed of registration process and fees of Abu Dhabi Toll System that will be launched by DoT and ITC on 15 October
Abu Dhabi’s Department of Transport (DoT) and Integrated Transport Centre (ITC) announced the launch of the registration process for Abu Dhabi Toll System – which is set to be activated on 15 October – could be carried out through the department’s website or any Tamm government service centres in Abu Dhabi during working hours.
Registration is mandatory for “anyone who wishes to use roads” leading to Abu Dhabi, DoT said in a statement.
Vehicles registered within Abu Dhabi before 15 October will be filed in the toll system by default without any charges, while those registering after the date will pay a registration fee of AED100 per vehicle, of which AED50 is the cost of registering, with the rest to be credited to owner accounts for toll use.
Vehicles registered outside Abu Dhabi require their owners to register manually through DoT's website, as well as pay the registration fee.
Vehicles crossing toll gates without registering will be granted a 10 working-day grace period to register, after which the fines are said to include AED100 for the first day, AED200 for the second day, and AED400 for the third and subsequent days, up to a maximum of AED10,000.
ITC will collect a toll as each vehicle crosses any of the four toll gates on Sheikh Zayed Bridge, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Bridge, Al Maqtaa Bridge, and Mussafah Bridge.
Peak-hour toll fee is said to be AED4 for every pass between 7-9am and 5-7pm on Saturday to Thursday. During off-peak hours, on Fridays, and during public holidays, the toll fee will be AED2 for every pass.
The toll collection system will be operational 24x7, with a daily maximum fee of AED16 per vehicle.
