MAWAQIF Parking Details
The Department of Transport (DoT) introduces Mawaqif, a comprehensive parking management program that aims to resolve parking issues in the capital.
For the initial phase, paid parking locations will be: the area between Khalifa Street and Hamdan Street as well as the area between sheikh Zayed 1st (Electra) and Liwa Street.
This is the first of nine stages to be rolled out to cover the main streets of the city by 2011. The enforcement of paid parking serves to aid motorists in reducing the time and stress levels encountered in finding available parking spaces as well as increasing vehicle turn over and preventing the misuse of limited spaces.
