RAWALPINDI: With the work on Metro Bus service is nearing completion, all kind of parking on Murree Road and alternative routes has been banned to ensure smooth flow of vehicular traffic.
In a statement issued here, Rawalpindi Chief Traffic Officer (CTO) Shoaib Khurram Janbaz warned the encroacher against any venture on these roads. He asked people to use Airport Road and Peshawar Road for going to Islamabad to avoid traffic mess.

He said the city traffic police have also prepared a plan to keep the traffic moving as much as possible. All necessary arrangements, regarding the flow of the traffic, have been made to facilitate the citizens, mainly motorists, he said.
