Speed breakers causing traffic jams, accidents
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
