Another issue that has worsened the traffic situation in Islamabad is the development of New Islamabad International Airport. Lack of transport routes towards the airport has resulted in traffic jams near Kashmir Highway. Almost every day the twin cities citizens are facing traffic problems, they are getting stuck in traffic for hours at a time and it is becoming unbearable.
People have expressed their fury and anger towards the traffic issue on Twitter.
“With the inauguration of Islamabad Airport, traffic rush on Kashmir Highway has exponentially increased. Metrobus service has squeezed Kashmir highway from H-13. No lights on Kashmir highway.”
