Its called the Faisal mosque.

It was made at the foothills of the margalla hills as the backdrop gives it a magnificent look ( the while color of the mosque against lush green hills) and its architecture also suites the hilly background.

Its not far away from the main commercial hub of the city ( the blue area) and there residential sectors nearby so while its not in the centre, its not far away from inhabited areas as well.

Now that the city has grown and expanded, i cant think of a better place where it could have been. I think the location is excellent.

Impressive roads, though.
As you can see, one of the gaps have been fitted by a light pole. The bridge was under construction and it the visible gaps will accommodate lighting poles.

E-toll system introduced on motorways

ISLAMABAD, Nov 6: The National Highway Authority in collaboration with National Database and Registration Authority has introduced an automatic electronic toll system on motorways.
In first phase, the system will be available for motorists using Peshawar, Islamabad and Lahore toll plazas for both entry and exit. Later on, the system will be extended to all toll plazas located on other routes like M-1, M-2 and M-3.

An essential component of this system is an electronic tag that is now available free of cost from Peshawar, Islamabad and Lahore Toll Plazas. Those who want to secure the chip will be required to submit full particulars about their person, details of bank account and other information.

The NHA staff posted at the plazas for selling of the tag will register all such details in their system. Travellers will then be required to stick the chip on the top or front of their vehicles.The NHA computerised system will automatically read the chip when they pass through the toll plazas and let them pass by lifting the bar giving a green signal.


A very interesting feature of the new system is that the required amount would be electronically deducted from the bank account of the motorist.The e-toll will also have a fast tracking system installed which will detect wrong information givers. As such, in case there is no amount in the account of the person concerned the NHA electronic system will recognise it and signal stop by flashing the red light and the bar would not be lifted.

The newly-introduced e-toll will provide motorists and travellers a number of facilities. It will save time, spare motorists and transporters from standing in long queues for obtaining entry cards and payment of toll and also enable vehicles pass through toll plazas without stopping at the time of entry and exit on the motorways.

2x3 lanes in the middle of nowhere. Looks like somewhat British design. Though it might look stupid now, you'll bet traffic will increase in the future, wether it's on fossile fuel or an alternative fuel source.

Some of these pics are a bit old...nowadays there's far more cars to be seen. Look at post 56 ( this is a current picture taken by fellow forumer). You can clearly see some traffic at the toll plaza.

No. of cars on the road have dramatically increased in the last 2-3 yrs thanks to easy leasing facilities.
