50 cops to ensure smooth traffic flow on Expressway

ISLAMABAD:  Around 50 personnel of Islamabad Traffic Police  (ITP) have been assigned the duties to ensure smooth flow of traffic on Islamabad Expressway especially at construction site of the interchange. Ongoing construction work near `Dhok Kala Khan’ interchange will ultimately facilitate traffic but for the time being traffic jam is being witnessed there during peak hours.

Traffic clogging at this point is becoming worsening during the last one month as the road construction is underway. Many people coming to the airport through the highway are often missing their flights.  The situation becomes more troublesome during the peak rush hours when people and students go to their work places and schools. The expressway is also used for very important persons (VVIP) movement, thus multiplying the difficulties. –APP
