Chairman of the Capital Development Authority, Captain (retired) Muhammad Usman, has shown keen interest in the newly developed traffic signal and has also invited the student for a meeting.
Earlier, Islamabad Capital Territory Police (ICTP) traffic devision launched an operation to clampdown unlawful parking in the Blue Area.
The Police also Tweeted in this regard and urged people not to turn sidewalks into parking spots as they are meant to be for ‘pedestrians.’
Blue Area, being one of the major business centres of the twin cities, is often crowded and hence, parking is a huge problem there.
