The majority of the northern section of the road is complete and open for regular traffic. Although some minor work on the project is still ongoing. Caution is advised while driving on the said road as some sections have heavy labor activity taking place.

Margalla Avenue is a 33-kilometer highway in Islamabad’s Margalla Hills. The road is an alternative to Srinagar Highway and will provide easy access from the tenth and eleventh sectors of Islamabad to the N-5 National Highway.

This road is an integral part of the Rawalpindi Ring Road project, as it connects Sangjani (N-5 National Highway) to Barakahu (Murree Expressway).

    Looks like these road builders are paving their way to infamy by causing chaos in the local community and taking a toll on nature. Building a road in a national park? That’s like a construction detour straight to environmental disaster. Poor and pathetic coordinations with the affectees.
