According to details, for the last few days, traffic is continuously being blocked from Khanna-Bridge to Faizabad section of Islamabad Expressway in the morning. No policemen is seen to control the traffic, especially the heavy traffic entering in the city after 9am

Non-presence of police staff might be due to signal free artery (Khana Bridge to Faizabad) who do not bother to check lane or other violations there.
