RTA processes 50,000 NOCs for infrastructure projects

DUBAI, January 17, 2018

Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) said the number of No Objection Certificates (NOCs) relating to infrastructure projects and works in Dubai currently hovers around 50,000 transactions per annum.

These NOCs have been issued to the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa), Dubai Municipality, Etisalat, du, Empower, Etihad Rail, and the Armed Forces.

The online processing of these NOCs are part of the coordination with service entities in Dubai towards making the smart transition a reality, said the RTA in a statement.

Maitha bin Adai, the chief executive of Traffic and Roads Agency at RTA, pointed out that the agency processes about 50,000 NOC transactions in respect of facilities and infrastructure every year.

"Issuing these certificates is a pre-condition for carrying out works in the right-of-way such as the extension of main and subsidiary utility lines of electricity, water, sewage, storm and irrigation water, telecommunication, central cooling, landscaping, and building construction among others," she noted.

"Issuing NOCs online through RTA's online website underscores the authority’s keenness to leverage the smart transition of basic government services through introducing smart and innovative solutions to improve the customer’s experience," remarked bin Adai.
"Moreover, it saves the time and effort and enhances the satisfaction and happiness of clients," she added.-TradeArabia News Service
