Road clogged because Korangi Road, EBM Causeway are closed
Karachi’s Korangi Crossing and KPT flyover became a traffic nightmare for many people Wednesday morning. Many people were stuck in traffic for at least three hours.
People who use the route have been advised to find an alternate way.
The traffic mess has occurred because the Korangi Road and EBM Causeway have been closed for traffic after they were flooded following heavy monsoon rains in Karachi on Monday and Tuesday. The Malir River overflowed and the roads were closed for traffic. Many people were stuck on the roads following flooding and had to be rescued.
One person said that it took him one-and-a-half hours to travel from Defence View to DHA Phase II. “Traffic was completely jam-packed,” he said.
Another woman said that it took her three hours to reach her office using that route.
“The road is completely packed,” said another person. The situation has been made worse by people driving on the wrong side, he added.
Police, Rangers and traffic police are trying to control the traffic.
