I agree with u but the time & oil that people waste in these traffic jams is also vital.........They have to made Lahore canal road 4 lane each side, so that it can counter increasing traffic, we can see the difference from PU underpass to Muslim town underpass. There is a solution to every problem, they can plant 10 saplings in replacement of every tree, CDA does that many times.......

Or these monkeys can simply import a tree transplanting machine which can take fully grown trees out of the ground along with their root system and transplant them wherever one wants.

Heres a link to a picture of such a machine

maybe they can plant trees somewhere else but then canal road will look silly, you might is well take the canal away then and make it underground and build a road on top. a canal road without trees will look lifeless.

If they made Canal road 4 lane, still there will be alot of space for trees as u can see that patch which is already 4 lane.......Also, in order to make Lahore a less polluted city, they have to grow trees all around Lahore not just on canal road.......

The solution to this problem of traffic is not to endlessly keep extending roads at the expense of the environment because as you keep building the roads, more cars will keep clogging them. Los Angeles is a prime example of this.

The solution this shit is better public transport. A more extensive network of Public transport at an affordable price. A system good enough to encourage people to leave their cars behind.

you are absolutely riteee...and u know wht a very famous town planner from england last year visited lahore and karachi and observed all the road expansion projects in both cities....he said the similar thing that traffic issues can never b solved by road expansions and building a mess of flyovers and underpasses...to minimize the traffic problems u need an excellent town planning...which includes a good public transport as the most important factor......our management must realize this concept of town planning
