With this I would also like to share the changes and developments that happend. The huge Underpasses will of course help divert and distribute traffic specially that is moving to Rawalpindi. But this does't solve all problems. In fact the number of vehicles are increasing. Residents of Islamabad are selling motorbikes and buying small cars. A used Mehran costs between 2 lakh and 3 Lakhs. Some thing an average middle class salary person can purchase easily with 1 year saving in Islamabad. I believe Islamabad is going to face acute problems of traffic congestion in like 3-4 years from now. The courts and judiciary system of Islamabad has now moved to G-10/1 I & t cENTRE. There are lots of government offices being constructed in buildings in Mauve Area if you move from G-10/1 towards 0 point. This road has now also been converted to one way after adding another lane. The new stock exchange building is a real nice one and impressive. Islamabad really needs to have tall towers in Blue area to make it look impressive. However eathquake in Islamabad has always been a threat predicted. With the collapse of Margallah Tower earth quake, residents of Islamabad now hesitate to reside in tall buildings or towers. The CDA must give assurity and make it very strict to abide the earth quake tolerance policy.
