As compared to Lahore, traffic situation in Pindi is in control. Also, as Islamabad is a ‘planned’ city, it doesn’t face any issue.
According to most people, Metro in Pindi/Isl has created congestion and has done more bad than good. The trees were cut down, compromising the recreational site that the twin cities enjoyed.
Also, the travel problem could be solved easily as most people own their transport.
The substantial investment that was made here could have been more efficiently used to help any other city overcome the traffic issues.
