The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has launched the Drone Service to facilitate the monitoring of completed phases of RTA’s vital projects, thus doing away with the need to follow the traditional steps to accomplish such an arduous task. 

1“Launching the Drone Service is a practical response to the directives of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to serve the people,” said the CEO of RTA Corporate Technical Support Services Sector, Abdullah Al Madani.

“Along with bringing happiness to people, which is one of our strategic goals, the initiative of Sheikh Mohammed has opened up for us wider vistas and new horizons to serve the people,” he said.

He mentioned the “recently conducted practical test run by flying a drone to monitor the implementation phases of Jumeirah Beach Walkway Project, street lighting units, and completed phases of the Dubai Water Canal project.”

The test has several benefits as it has provided us with a holistic view of the sites and projects to follow up the completion phases. More info
