Future Ideas Of Dubais Road & Transport Authority (RTA) Plans - Auction Export
Future plans of Dubai's Road & Transport Authority (RTA)
Dubai's Road & Transport Authority (RTA) becoming environment friendly
Dubai's Road & Transport Authority (RTA) plans to implement few ideas in the coming months, which were kept confidential till now.
- The RTA plans to ban cars older than 20 years. By 2010, cars older than 15 years will be banned as an attempt to reduce emissions, which no other country has ever implemented till now.
- The RTA has also launched hybrid taxis in Dubai to save the environment. The vehicles are “fuel-efficient” Chevy Tahoes and Malibus. As per US governmental tests, a Tahoe Hybrid consumes 11.7 liters of petrol per 100 km, while a normal Camry consumes only 9 liters per 100 km.
- The RTA plans to build two more tollgates (at Maktoum Bridge and Safa Park) to reduce traffic load. They proclaim that they have been able to reduce traffic at the existing gates. And it is only “phase two” of the plan.
- The RTA now plans to build an eight-lane highway right through new Dubai, where semi-rich people of Dubai bought property to build peaceful bungalows in a quiet residential neighborhood.
- The RTA also plans to give probationary licenses to new drivers, renewable every year for 3 years, instead of the 10-year licenses that everyone over 21 currently gets. The plan seems to be ineffective on the under 21, who fall under this system.
