Dubai’s Jumeirah Lake Towers to introduce paid parking

The area was one of the few in Dubai where parking was free

Jumeirah Lakes Towers developer Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) has signed an agreement to introduce paid parking to the area by year-end.

The deal with Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) will see the management and operation of visitor parking shifted across two phases.

The first phase for 2017 will cover 1,936 parking slots, which will be classified into different zones depending on the needs of the area.

A further 460 slots will be provided in the second stage up to 2020.

Drivers will pay for parking in the area from Saturday to Thursday via text message or the RTA Dubai app, according to the categories and fees for each zone.

RTA traffic and roads agency CEO Maitha bin Adai said there would be no seasonal parking permits for the area as residential parking is already provided in the blocks.

Several disabled parking spaces have been allocated at cluster entrances.

“JLT is a vibrant community, where over 92,500 people live and work every day,” said Ahmed Bin Sulayem, executive chairman of DMCC.

“We are pleased to collaborate with the RTA to roll out the latest in technology with this new smart parking scheme in our community, another next step in line with our smart district strategy for JLT.”

DMCC is currently undertaking construction work on the Uptown Dubai district, formerly known as Burj 2020, next to Jumeirah Lake Towers.
