The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has mobilised machinery for the construction of protected U-turns and slip roads at Rawal Dam Chowk. This initiative was taken to cater traffic issues in the capital particularly on Murree Road and Park Road of Islamabad. In this connection, work on protected U-turns has already started. The construction of this U-turn will not only help reduce traffic burden but also help minimise traffic accidents from this busy road. Under this initiative, three slip roads will also be constructed in the vicinity to further ease the smooth traffic flow on this major avenue. These roads will help lead the traffic emerging from Serena Chowk to Park Road and from Park Road to Faizabad and from Faizabad, Murree Road to Islamabad Club, Murree Road. It is pertinent to mention that earlier this month, CDA chairman had directed the traffic & urban planning director to coordinate with Islamabad’s traffic police to chalk out a comprehensive workable plan to fix traffic issues all over the city particularly at Rawal Dam Chowk. In this connection, initially, slip roads and protected U-turns are being constructed to help with the smooth flow of traffic in the area. Published in Daily Times, February 12th 2019.
