The Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) Police released an alternative traffic plan on Friday ahead of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) long march in Rawalpindi on Saturday.

The traffic on both sides of Murree Road has been diverted at Faizabad, according to ICT police.

Therefore, it is possible to access Rawalpindi from Islamabad through the old airport road and stadium road.


In addition, both Express Chowk and NADRA Chowk are entirely blocked off from accessing the Red Zone. As an alternative route, Margalla Road, Ayub Chowk, and Serena Chowk can be used.

Islamabad’s other routes are all accessible to traffic.

Residents are urged to dial the helpline number 15 in case of any emergency.

Every kind of public gathering in the federal capital, including those in and near the Red Zone, is now subject to Section 144. However, the permit to hold the rally is only given if the proposed routes are followed.
