Two underpasses are announced to build at Marir Chowk & Liaquat Bagh Chowk in this regard. As per Arif Abbasi, Chairman RDA, around 1 lac vehicles use Murree road per day. Due to this high influx of transports, frequent traffic jam occurs. These 2 planned underpasses would help to elevate the traffic flow on Murree road somehow.
In addition, once completed, Islamabad will be only 10 minutes drive from Saddar. Moreover, it will also become convenient route for the passengers moving from Saddar to Kachehri & Liquat Bagh ultimately.
