Speed break­ers caus­ing traf­fic jams, ac­ci­dents

Pakistan Observer - - TWIN CITIES -

RAWALPINDI— The res­i­dents of Askari 7, 14 and numer­ous colony have urged the of­fi­cials con­cerned to di­rect the Can­ton­ment au­thor­i­ties to re­move the speed break­ers along the road at 502 Work­shop which are un­nec­es­sar­ily caus­ing traf­fic jam and have led to a num­ber of ac­ci­dents. The res­i­dents of New Lalazar, Rah- e- Amen Askari 7 and 14 are per­plexed why the au­thor­ity has taken the step which has cre­ated prob­lems for the com­muters.

Col. ( Retd) Pervez talk­ing to APP said what is the logic of erect­ing the break­ers along the work­shop which works from 8 in the morn­ing till 3 in the af­ter­noon. Adding that when­ever there is move­ment of heavy ve­hi­cle in or out of the work­shop the RP man­ages the move­ment of traf­fic.

Shafiq Khan another area res­i­dent said that move­ment on the road has be­come prob­lem­atic since the plac­ing of these break­ers and won­dered why the Can­ton­ment au­thor­i­ties had not taken the res­i­dents into con­fi­dence, adding there is no school or mar­ket along the road which has has been blocked, sim­i­larly what is the logic of plac­ing a breaker in front of Unit lines.

Col. ( Retd) Mo­ha­bat a res­i­dent of Askari 13 said the log­jam was also block­ing the flow of traf­fic at the in­ter­sec­tion of Tulsa road and COD Sig­nal and de­manded of the au­thor­i­ties to re­view their de­ci­sion.

Mean­while, the res­i­dents de­manded ur­gent re­pair of the roads in the area prior to the start of mon­soon rains.

Brig ( Retd) Arabi talk­ing to the Agency said “We have been de­mand­ing of the Can­ton­ment au­thor­i­ties to erect a proper speed breaker in front of Askari 7 to fa­cil­i­tate the res­i­dents to cross over for go­ing to the Mosque.” Qa­marul­lah a res­i­dent of Gul­shan­abad said the Can­ton­ment staff should com­plete the re­pair of Fir­dosi road which has been left half­way and is the main artery for a large pop­u­la­tion com­ing from Sad­dar and other ar­eas.— APP
