The UAE has been notable in recent years for the fast pace at which it has been growing and adopting the latest trends when it comes all sectors whether it is technology, construction or the automotive sector. The launch of the Smart Dubai strategy back in 2014 and the UAE Vision 2021 initiative are in line with the country’s drive to achieve sustainable growth and emerge as one of the best places to live in the world.
The Gulf Traffic Exhibition and Conference which was held this month from December 7 to 9 at the World Trade Center in Dubai emphasized the rapid evolution of the transport sector in the country and indeed in the entire region.
Topics that were up for discussion at the conference included the use of smart technologies for parking, innovative road designs, road traffic sustainability and safety and new trends in the transport sector on a global basis.
Issues like traffic congestion, the endless search for parking spaces and the use of paper tickets for parking that prove to be a hassle for the modern day motorist will soon become a thing of the past with the adoption of modern technologies and effective planning. DEWA is already proceeding with the implementation of its plan to set up 100 stations for charging electric vehicles across Dubai by the end of the year.
With new norms related to tires and proactive adoption of smarter transport solutions by both the government and the general public, life is bound to become safer and more convenient for motorists across the nation by the end of the year.
