IRD in partnership with Microsystems provided a toll system in Ras Al-khayma, UAE that charges a toll-fee to all trucks that are exiting the limestone quarries and traveling to cement plants in the other Emirates or towards ports to have the limestone shipped to other countries.
IRD worked with the RAK Public Works and Services Department (PWSD) to assist them in the regulation of the weight and number of transport trucks that are constantly using its roads and highways as well as provided an independent audit system to verify the count and classification of vehicles exiting the quarries. The independent audit system allows the authorities to monitor the traffic count and classification information for each lane in the plaza, and to match this information to a set time period, such as the duration of an operator's shift. The information collected is then used by the operator to cross check the actual revenue collected, as compared to what they would expect given the detected traffic. IRD's system operates on 2 lanes on Al Saadi road, 4 lanes on Shouka 1, and 2 lanes on Shouka 2.Back to Projects
