While going on the motorway or entering Islamabad through the G.T. road, we come across far too many toll plazas that collect quite a booty from weary travelers. One has to pay the toll twice on the small stretch from Wah to Islamabad. Motorway is too long a route that is also too expensive while the G.T. Road is too much of a physical and mental trauma to bear. The Taxila-G.T. Road link is in the process of completion but the conditions, instead of becoming better, have become worse. The work is at a standstill, even though, the citizens have been dutifully paying the taxes. -FIZZA HASSAN, Wah Cantt., via e-mail, August 4.
