Fog engulfs parts of Punjab, restricts visibility range on roads

January 26, 2019

Intense foggy conditions engulfed the plains of Punjab Saturday morning, making travel on highways difficult.

Motorway police spokesperson Saeed Imran said severe fog has been reported in Habibabad, Akhtarabad, Renala Khurd, Okara, Sahiwal, Mian Channu and Khanewal.

It is affecting the day-to-day lives of the people in these areas. The flow of traffic has also slowed down due to the fog.

According to the meteorological department, visibility on most roads is only at 100 metres. The roads have also become slippery.

Imran said the  motorway was closed across various points due to the dense fog. The motorway was closed from Lahore to Kala Shah Kaku. The Multan-Khanewal motorway has also been closed for this reason.
