Three-month grace period announced for Abu Dhabi road tolls

Motorists have been given an extra three months to register vehicles and top-up accounts

Three-month grace period announced for Abu Dhabi road tolls

Reports revealed numerous motorists experiencing difficulty in registering their vehicles.

Motorists are being given a three-month grace period with regard paying for the new toll system in Abu Dhabi.

The road toll system went live on January 2, impacting those travelling through four main bridges in the emirate – Sheikh Zayed Bridge, Sheikh Khalifa Bridge, Al Maqta Bridge and Mussaffah Bridge.

However, reports revealed numerous motorists experiencing difficulty in registering their vehicles.

According to the latest social media awareness campaign by the Integrated Transport Centre in Abu Dhabi, fines will not be imposed for the next three months, giving plenty of time for vehicles to be registered and accounts topped-up.

Motorists will be charged AED4 every time they pass through any of the bridges, with a daily cap of AED16 and a monthly cap of AED200.

However, charges will only apply during peak hours, from 7am to 9am and 5pm to 7pm, from Saturday through to Thursday.

It costs AED100 to register a vehicle, with AED50 credited back to the user’s account.
