  • Why Hasan Square flyover shall be closed for Traffic? Organizing Cricket Matches and creating scene of Curfew is not good for the City. Pl. donot disturb the flow of traffic and business and keep normal. Use all modern Gadgets to monitor the things around National Stadium.

  • Good to know that they are blocking lesser roads this time,
    Last time they blocked whole karsaz road along with flyover as well as whole dalmia road from millenium mall to stadium, it was menace that day, a traffic nightware, everyone was trying to go from dalmia, when they get there they see block and they come back wrong way to go towards drigh road for shahra-e-faisal and the jam started right from neuplex cinema, everyone would have gotten late to work
