Mawaqif is expanding its coverage in Abu Dhabi by introducing 8,400 new paid parking spaces

Mawaqif is to create 8,400 new paid parking spots around the capital.

Mawaqif is set to expand its coverage in Abu Dhabi by adding over 8,400 paid parking spaces by the end of the year, the Department of Transport said. The new expansion will bring the number of Mawaqif-covered sectors in the capital to 50 and the total number of paid parking spaces to 98,600, reported Al Ittihad, the Arabic-language sister paper of The National. Parking fares and timings will remain unchanged, but the number of parking controllers and patrols will rise to keep up with the expansion.
