At the World Government Summit (WGS) in Dubai, Mattar Al Tayer, the head of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), unveiled staggering statistics highlighting the transformative impact of smart infrastructure investments in the emirate.

 

According to Al Tayer, Dubai has recorded economic savings of a whopping 290 billion UAE dirhams ($78.95 billion) since 2006, primarily attributed to reduced time and fuel savings resulting from decreased traffic congestion. This achievement underscores Dubai’s commitment to harnessing technology to enhance urban living and drive economic growth.

 

Al Tayer emphasised the pivotal role of smart infrastructure in shaping future cities, where Artificial Intelligence (AI) and big data drive autonomous transport systems. Dubai’s proactive investment in these smart systems has positioned it as a global leader in urban innovation, yielding remarkable results and setting new benchmarks for sustainable development.

 

Moreover, the RTA’s ambitious plans for the future were unveiled at the summit, including the launch of air taxi services in 2026 and the Dubai Strategy for Self-Driving Transport. This strategic initiative aims to transition 25% of trips to self-driving modes by 2030, with an estimated saving of AED22 billion while enhancing safety, efficiency, and sustainability.

 

With Dubai’s relentless pursuit of cutting-edge solutions and transformative projects, the city continues to redefine the possibilities of urban living. As smart infrastructure becomes increasingly integral to shaping the cities of tomorrow, Dubai stands at the forefront of innovation, paving the way for a brighter and more sustainable future.
