Loaded and heavy vehicles will not be allowed to travel on Karachi’s Shahrah-e-Faisal during 7am to 11pm, announced the traffic police on Monday, Geo News reports.
A traffic police spokesperson said that the decision was undertaken to ensure a smooth flow of traffic on Shahrah-e-Faisal.
Previously it was announced that rickshaws will also be banned on the road- the ban was then suspended for a month. According to DIG Traffic Ameer Sheikh, a survey will be conducted during this time period, to decide whether rickshaws should be allowed to travel on the road.
“Bus-stop boards and other signboards will also hang at different places of this track in a few days,” he said.
DIG Traffic Ameer Sheikh had stated that a new rule will be implemented from September 26th , banning three passengers from riding motorbikes on the Shahrah-e-Faisal road.
A new traffic plan was implemented earlier this month, for Shahrah-e-Faisal with a total of 132 traffic policemen who are deployed on the road to manage traffic. The special traffic force is called the Shahrah-e-Faisal Force.
The police force will be having 8 lifters and 44 motorbikes, DIG Traffic said. The policemen will be operating in two shifts while those who disrupt traffic will be charged with anti-terrorism laws.
