Fog affects traffic flow in different parts of country

QUETTA: Cold and cloudy weather is expected in most parts of the country. However, rain/snow is likely in north Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Gilgit-Baltistan, Pothohar region and Kashmir.

A thick layer of fog has enveloped many cities in Punjab including Lahore, paralysing routine life and disrupting road traffic. The dense fog has badly affected the flow of road traffic in several cities. According to a Motorway spokesperson, the Motorway M2 from Lahore to Kot Sarwar, Lahore-Multan Motorway M3 from Faizpur to Rajana, Motorway M4 from Faisalabad to Abdul Hakim and Motorway M5 from Shershah to Zahir Pir have been closed for all kind of traffic.

The Motorway police have appealed the drivers to use Grand Trunk (GT) Road for travelling. They have also urged the drivers to drive slowly and switch on fog lights. The Motorway police have also requested the people to stay home and avoid unnecessary travelling. Dense fog has also disrupted traffic at several places in the province at the National Highway due to low visibility.
