NationalHigh traffic congestion areas in Islamabad

During 2007 to 2022, the population of Islamabad has been increased from 7,25000 to 20,01,579 as well as vehicular population from 1,69,788 to 14,11,170 as registered by ETO Islamabad, apart from daily entry of vehicles from neighboring Cities i.e., Rawalpindi, Attock, Jhelum & Murree while the resources of Islamabad Traffic Police (ITP) are reduced as compared to 2005.

Yet the ITP is striving hard to maintain smooth flow of traffic and to facilitate the road commuters in Islamabad with its available meager resources.

Special deployment has been made during rush hours i.e., School/College & Office Timing from 0700 to 0900 hours in morning & 1230 to 1430 hours in evening to manage traffic flow in the Capital.High traffic congestion areas in Islamabad
