Is Shahrah-e-Faisal still your choice?

Ali Adnan Qazalbash explains why many people take any other route than SF.View Full Image

By the mid of 2005 Shahrah-e-Faisal (Faisal Highway) used to be the fastest way of traveling from southern Karachi to north-east part of city and vice versa i.e. Karachi Airport. Now a days many people avoid using this highway during rush hours of evening as a huge tide of traffic pass through this time of week days.

    Unfortunately, yes. It is the shortest way from my home to work. The traffic has grown tenfold on it in the last couple of years but for people like me who have their offices on main Sharah-e-Faisal, I’m afraid there’s no alternative – yet anyway.

    ahhh well u can clearly see the problem in the picture. If every one follows the lanes properly. Buses, rickshwas and motorcycles keep to the left and other vehicles move in their lanes then we wont have this problem.

    We all are lacking driving sense.

    Driving sense plus patience…slow speed and lane Discipline drive traffic and prevent gridlock.
    No major city is without train system…Bring it on
