Provincial cabinet takes serious notice of traffic problems in Peshawar

February 1, 2012

Peshawar: The provincial cabinet in its meeting on January 30, 2012 expressed serious concern over the growing traffic problems in Peshawar which was causing immense inconvenience to the general public.

A task force under the Chief Secretary Khyber Pakhtoonkhaw was therefore, constituted to look into all aspects of the issue i.e. legal, administrative and infrastructure and come up with concrete proposals to address the issue and provide comfort to the people.

As a beginning, a team comprising of Secretary Transport, DIG Traffic, Secretary PTA/RTA and ACO Peshawar visited different parts of the city like Ashraf Road, Chowk Yadgar, City Circular Road, Bacha Khan Chowk and analyzed the problems on ground like encroachments, illegal stands, blockade of roads by vendors, illegal cabins and establishment of rickshaw repair workshops on Circular Road of Peshawar.

The team met with a cross section of people who apprised them of difficulties being faced by them, especially the female pedestrian using these roads. In most plans the footpaths had been literally occupied by vendors/shopkeepers forcing pedestrian to walk on road and adding to traffic hazards.

The Secretary Transport gave all the violators a deadline of three days to clean the footpaths/roads, failing which a full-fledged cleanup operation would be launched.
