According to the details, an elevated flyover will be built on the main Srinagar Highway, and traffic coming from Faqir Apiee Road will be able to get to the main highway through the roundabout. The flyover will be built at Police Line Chowk, which is where Srinagar Highway and Faqir Aipee Road meet. The Chairman told the people in charge to come up with a good plan for the spots on Srinagar Highway where there is a lot of traffic.
It’s important to remember that protected U-turns were put in place to reduce traffic jams. Since there are no more signals on the Srinagar Highway, the number of accidents has gone up. There was a meeting to figure out what to do. The consultant suggested putting a flyover and raised U-turns at the intersection of 10th Avenue and National University of Science and Technology (NUST). The CDA Chairman only agreed to the flyover after the discussion.
