Lahore Ring Road woes

April 02, 2013

RECENTLY when I decided to make my way at Ring Road, Lahore, from the 32-chowk side, I was astonished to note that some traffic wardens were on duty to divert motorcyclists to change their lane.

I stopped for a while and reminded the duty-bound traffic wardens about the motto of a former chief minister of Punjab that “Ring Road is a project that would provide ease to the general public”.

All such mega projects facilitate elite families who use four wheelers. When, on the insistence of the traffic wardens, I changed my lane to the service road, I viewed a great rush of vehicles there.

I was hoping to cover my distance within 20 minutes but it took me an hour and 25 minutes to do so.

I request the management concerned of Ring Road to allow two wheelers.
