Islamabad, February 11, 2019 (PPI-OT):Capital Development Authority (CDA) has mobilized machinery for construction of protected U-Turn and slip roads at Rawal Dam Chowk. This initiative was taken to cater traffic issues in the capital particularly at the Murree Road and Park Road of Islamabad.
In this connection, work on protected U-Turn has already been started. Construction of this U-turn will not only help reduce traffic burden but also help minimize traffic accidents from this busy road. Under this initiative, three (03) 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 / Murree to Park Road, from Park Road to Faizabad / Murree Road and from Faizabad / Murree Road to Islamabad Club / Murree Road.
It is pertinent to mention here that earlier this month; Chairman CDA had directed the Director Traffic Planning and Director Urban Planning to coordinate with Islamabad Traffic Police to chalk out a comprehensive workable plan to fix traffic issues all over the city particularly at the Rawal Dam Chowk. In this connection, initially slip roads and protected U-Turn are being constructed intended to help smooth traffic flow in the area.
