Islamabad : Islamabad Traffic Police (ITP), to ensure public mobility, has chalked out a comprehensive traffic diversion plan on the city’s major avenues and arteries during the Saudi Crown prince Muhammad bin Salman’s visit, scheduled for February 16-17.

"In an exclusive interview with the APP, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Farrukh Rashid Friday said that law enforcement agencies were assigned to make arrangements for the city’s security plan during stay of the dignitaries and the ITP was mandated to regulate the city’s traffic during these couple of days.

In the anticipation of Saudi delegation’s arrival here, the SSP said the inter provincial traffic coming from Punjab and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa is completely banned to enter Islamabad form today (Saturday) 4 a.m to Sunday 10 p.m.

Farrukh advised the citizens intending to commute within the twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi during these days may use 9th avenue, connecting their inter-city mobility.

He recommended the dwellers moving for New Islamabad Airport to use Kashmir Highway and 9th avenue adding the connecting minor roads to Kashmir Highway would remain opened. He said the commuters destined for Murree must follow ITP’s traffic advisory released after every hour on ITP FM radio channel for the public to plan their hassle free tours.

Heavy traffic coming from Lahore to Islamabad would be diverted from Rawat T-Cross from where they may use Peshawar G T Road and Motorway after passing through Sawan Garden, Kutchery Chowk and Rawalpindi Saddar.

The route for heavy traffic from Kak Bridge towards Koral Chowk or Islamabad Expressway would be closed while such traffic may use alternate routes of Kak Bridge to PWD Society, Sawan Garden, Kutchery Chowk and Rawalpindi Saddar to reach Peshawar Road or Motorway.
