Salik is an automated toll system for Dubai’s roads. There are currently six gates: one at Garhoud Bridge, another on the Sheikh Zayed Road after Mall of the Emirates, one at Safa Park on Sheikh Zayed Road (between interchanges one and two), another on Maktoum Bridge, one on Al Ittihad Rd and another near Dubai Airport Tunnel.

The Maktoum Bridge crossing is free between 10pm and 6am Saturday to Thursday, and 10pm and 9am on Fridays, when the Floating Bridge is closed. There are no booths, and no need to stop as you drive through. Instead, drivers stick a tag to their windscreen, which is read by radio frequency as they pass through.
