Dubai’s electronic toll collection system – dubbed Salik, meaning “open” or “clear” – was introduced in July 2007 in order to ease traffic in a city with the world’s highest car ownership per head. But does Salik really live up to its name?

Another source of discontent lies in the RTA’s tight-lipped policy. When last year reports hinted at a massive expansion of the Salik road toll scheme, the RTA labeled these reports “inaccurate”, denying any expansion to the scheme. Phase 2 of Salik went on nonetheless, starting May 2008, a bit over a year later.
Similarly, authorities are reportedly planning toll gates on Emirates Road, Al Khail Road, Al Ittihad Road, Shindagha Tunnel and Business Bay Crossing by 2009, and on the yet-to-be-built Shindagha Bridge and a fifth bridge spanning Dubai Creek by 2010. Such an expansion would bring the total number of Salik gates in Dubai to 10. Yet again, RTA denied there were such plans for now, claiming that any such step will not be taken unless extensive studies are carried out.
