The 9th International Defence Exhibition and Seminar 2016 (IDEAS) is being hosted at Expo Centre Karachi, over the course of four days from 22nd of November to the 25th by the Defence Export Promotion Organisation (DEPO), in which 90 defence delegations of 43 countries are participating.
261 foreign and 157 Pakistani ordnance companies are having their products on display.
That will definitely bring in loads of unwanted traffic, not only from the event-goers but from the general public as wel since major routes have been shut dow in the city including Karsaz, University Road, Shaheed-e-Millat, Nipa and others. Here are the road plans have been altered for the event:

SSP Erum Awan said that the office of the deputy inspector general of police has decided to keep both tracks of the University Road open as opposed to what was decided before. The earlier decision was to close the road from morning to afternoon. She said, “It may be closed for a few minutes during VIP movement, but will be reopened soon after”.
