Strange occurance?

We’re all used to having SF closed for a period of time to facilitate VIP movement, but how many times have you actually had the police asking you to take a diversion?

Last night, while heading home, thats excatly what happened near Shahrah-e-Quaideen flyover, where traffic was diverted to tariq road. The same was apprently happening on the new Karsaz Flyover, where traffic was diverted towards Karsaz road towards National stadium.

Anyone have any idea why someone would close down just a strip of SF?

    The PM was in town last night. That might have the reason for the weird blockades.

    Maybe the PM stopped over for some snacks in the Nursery area, on his way to the airport.

    Assalam o alaikum

    well another reason that contributes is that the PM and the Busharraf land on the base faisal strip and from there they pass through the Falcon Society, and come out on the Shahid e Millat flyover, and then go to governor house, CM’s house, or Army house, all lying in the same high security zone of karachi.

    This prevents some portion of SF from being choked, and reduces the traffic turbulence at times.

    par salay shaadian attend karnay k liye hamari kyun bajatay hain ;)

    no no, none of them landed last night.

    I landed last night and that chaos was because of me. I decided to take a walk and choose the 4 acre piece of land to be leased to FBI office in Karachi, securly accesible to air strip of Base Faisal. without commoner knowing.

    And Not many may not be aware that USAID office in Sindhi Muslims society is functional again and is used as transit point of US security personnel stationed in Karachi.

    Notice a Curved pavement cut on centre median of SF between Nursery and FTC – That is access for the SUB Urbans & SUVs coming from wrong side to join uptraffic going to airport.

    :D smile it could be fiction to many !
