The situation was brought to the surface in a survey which depicted Depalpur Road as communication centre. All the traffic of the above mentioned areas passes through Depalpur while leading to Okara and back. Thus a very heavy traffic remains on the 25km Okara-Depalpur road round the clock. On account, the narrow width of the road also causes accidents.

It is the matter of about daily happening that one, two or more accidents occure on the road and published in the papers daily.

Besides, the traffic on the road is kept in high acceleration particularly by the passenger buses, vans and cars. Sometimes problem is faced when a vehicle has to pass the loaded truck or tractor-trolleys as there is no sufficient space left on the road. So, accidents occur.

The people of the areas demanded govt sufficiently widen the road to avoid accidents in which precious lives are spoiled.
