During the meeting it was also decided that additional lanes would be added, on need and land-availability basis, at all entry and exit points of the capital to ease traffic congestion at these terminals.

He expressed dissatisfaction over the present state of traffic management on the main highways especially the roads linking the twin cities including the Express Highway,Kashmir Road and the Murree Road.
