Administrator mulls routing heavy traffic via Lyari



The newly appointed city administrator, Murtaza Wahab, has Monday constituted a committee to work out a plan of routing heavy traffic via Lyari Expressway so it doesn’t have to cover large distances to get to the Super Highway.

The committee will oversee the administrative affairs of touring the heavy traffic via Lyari Expressway to its destination until Mauripur, where the expressway ends.

The huddle concluded that the heavy traffic, trucks, trailers, and cargo vehicles ply on the roads for about 90 kilometres to get to the Karachi Motorway which should be relieved.

Also, the flow of the general traffic will also smoothen if the heavy vehicles are detoured to take Lyari Expressway, Murtaza Wahab said in the high-level huddle today.
