The Supreme Committee for Strategic Planning & Corporate Development at the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), chaired by HE Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors, has approved RTA’s Revised Strategic Plan (2017-2021).

The revision covered RTA’s Mission (developing & managing integrated and sustainable roads & transit systems at excellent standards, delivering pioneering services to bring happiness to targeted audiences, supporting Dubai’s vision through shaping the future & developing policies & legislations, keeping abreast of technologies & innovations, and implementing top global practices & standards). Revisions also covered some strategic objectives to realign them with Dubai Government’s drive.

“Updating the Strategic Goals of RTA is in line with the directives of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai; HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and Chairman of the Executive Council; and HH Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and Deputy Chairman of the Executive Council.  Such directives focus on shaping the future and making Dubai a global capital of the future that ranks ten years ahead of other cities (10X Initiative) through developing cracking services contributing to people happiness. The revised Strategic Plan is also compliant with the UAE National Agenda as well as Dubai 2021 Plan,” said Al Tayer.

“RTA’s Strategic Goals have been reclassified into three core drivers. The first relates to the Community and encompasses three goals. The first is (Smart Dubai), which aims to enhance the pioneering role of information management as part of a comprehensive digital experience, besides developing smart solutions for transport, roads and traffic. The second is (Integrated Dubai) through which the RTA will be seeking to step up the integration between mobility and urban planning, make roads & transit systems friendly to all, and enhance the social responsibility practices. The third is (People Happiness) where the RTA intends to play a pioneering role in people happiness and ensuring harmonious attitudes to customers.

“The second key driver relates to Transit Systems and encompasses two strategic goals. The first is (Smooth Mobility for All) and can be achieved through promoting pool and mass transportation, improving a sustainable roads & transit network, managing the requirements of transport & traffic congestion, and developing effective policies & legislation for transportation, roads and traffic. The second one is (Safety & Environmental Sustainability). It covers improving the safety of transport & traffic, and curbing accidents & fatalities as well as enhancing the environmental sustainability of transport, occupational health & safety, and security. 

“The third key driver relates to Internal Efficiency and covers three strategic goals. The first is the (Financial Sustainability) through which the RTA seeks to promote and diversify revenues, boost public-private partnership, and improve the financial efficiency. The second is (RTA Excellence) through which the RTA seeks to attract, qualify and retain talents, enhance excellence & knowledge management, improve corporate systems & governance, take a leading role in innovation & future shaping, and cement the relationship with partners & suppliers. The third is (Asset Sustainability) through improving the efficiency of asset management, optimising asset performance and maximising asset value,” explained Al Tayer.

The goals, objectives and initiatives of RTA’s Strategic Plan will be a key driver of the sweeping development taking place in Dubai, and a source of inspiration for an improved performance that contributes to the people happiness said Al Tayer in a concluding remark.
