According to Mr. Nazim Faisal, Director of Roads Maintenance Dep’t at RTA Traffic & Roads Agency: RTA used ceramic studs; which is highly visible, easy to install and with a lifetime extending up to 10 years. Thus it is economically viable and the RTA is considering to use it in planning all parking in the emirate.

RTA will also continue with the lining of roads considering the importance of these lines to drivers as they ensure that vehicles are driven in a safe path and are therefore considered as a key tool of traffic safety that plays an effective role during both day and night.
“Over the last period, RTA has completed renovation works in several road ground lines, pedestrian crossing lines, ground arrows, and yellow boxes in several roads of Dubai such as: Academic City Road, Thaniya Rd, Manara Rd, Al Maktoum Rd, Al Wasl Rd, Doha Rd, Satwa Rd, Mina Rd, Safa Rd, Marrakech Rd, Al Ittihad Rd, Abu Baker Al Siddique Rd, Omer bin Al Khattab Rd, and Ras Al Khor Rd among others.
