Here’s the traffic plan:
The road from Karsaz via Hasan Square to Agha Khan Hospital gate number-3 will remain closed for commuters.
Roads on back of the National Stadium will be closed for the commuters, however; residents can use these routes by showing their original national identity cards.
Commuters can travel by using the routes of Agha Khan and Liaquat National Hospitals from New Town stop.
Sharah-e-Faisal and Rashid Minhas road will remain open for traffic.
Citizens travelling to Karsaz and Dalmia would have to use alternative routes.
The police diverted heavy traffic from Jail Chorangi and Laiquatabad routes.
