There will be smart roads which is also a project initiated by RTA – Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority. It will be a seamless experience for the drivers with all the perks of traffic management, smart parking, smart pedestrian crossings, pedestrian smart road shopping, roadway monitoring mobile cameras in major traffic diversions and smart street lights.

Dubai will seize this opportunity to put 5G networks in action and it is pretty much a center of attraction for internet surfers who will need their mobiles and a fast internet connection to interact and share glimpses of their experience on social media.
