Dubai: A new Salik toll gate will open on Shaikh Zayed road from October 24, the Roads and Transport Authority announced on Wednesday.
The Salik gate, third on Shaikh Zayed road and seventh overall, will be located near Energy metro station, helping divert traffic to Yalayis road and other parallel freeways.
Other Salik gates include the ones at Al Barsha, Al Safa, Al Maktoum, Al Garhoud, Mamzar and the Airport Tunnel.
Work on the installation of the gates is currently underway and will deduct toll from traffics on both sides of the road.
Motorists coming from Abu Dhabi will have an alternative route, once the seventh interchange gets ready, which is set to open on September 15.
