Coronavirus: Abu Dhabi to suspend parking charges for 3 weeks

Coronavirus: Abu Dhabi to suspend parking charges for 3 weeks

Mawaqif parking charges have been suspended for three weeks.

Abu Dhabi’s Department of Municipalities and Transport has announced a three-week suspension of Mawaqif parking charges in the emirate.

The decision comes into effect from tomorrow (Monday) and is subject to “revision and extension” the authority said in a tweet today.

“The Department of Municipalities and Transport announces its suspension of Mawaqif parking fees for a period of three weeks starting from tomorrow, Monday, and subject to revision and extension,” the DMT said.

Earlier this month, as part of its stimulus package for the emirate, Abu Dhabi Executive Council announced the exemption of vehicles from road tolls until the end of 2020. The tolls were designed a traffic-calming measure, and were only operational during peak hours on four bridges connecting Abu Dhabi island with the mainland.
