One of the busiest roads of Karachi, Drigh Road, has again been shut down! The reason for this is the maintenance work going on at the Rashid Minhas Flyover.

PTCL

The maintenance work started yesterday, 12th November 2017. Since then, the traffic system for the entire metropolitan city has been disturbed.

Now according to latest update, the new structure will take at least three months to complete

Previously, the Drigh Road Underpass was under construction in the first and the second quarter of this year and was under maintenance in the third quarter, which greatly affected the flow of traffic on this route.
