According to the news source, after the completion of the 5.5-kilometer-long road from Sector D-12 (where Margalla Avenue terminates) to E-11 in July, the traffic on Margalla Avenue will shift to Khayaban-i-Iqbal and E-11 Sector, resulting in a traffic jam.
CDA Chairman Noorul Amin Mengal revealed that the authority has decided to build 11th Avenue, which will provide a direct connection between E-11 and Srinagar Highway. In addition, a survey for the 11th Avenue Islamabad construction has begun, he added. It was stated that the survey would be concluded within one month. As a result of the 11th Avenue’s connection to Srinagar Highway and IJP road, the traffic burden will be divided once it is finished.
