The capital administration is also not paying heed towards construction of already announced expansion of Expressway from Gulberg to Rawat T-Chowk despite repeated appeals of commuters plying on the artery on daily basis.

The residents of adjacent housing societies had demanded the Capital Development Authority (CDA) to start construction and winding of Islamabad Expressway’s reaming portion from Koral Chowk to Rawat.

Talking to this agency, Mirza Munawar, a resident of PWD housing society said he daily visits his office located at Blue Area and facing severe traffic jam daily in morning and evening due to narrow bridge near Gulberg Green housing society. He said before general elections 2013, PML-N lawmaker Dr Tariq Fazal Chaudhary had promised to start widening of the Expressway from Rawat but they started it from Zero Point.
