KHANEWAL -- A four-day campaign to deliver lectures and penalise U-turn
violators on the Motorway passing through Khanewal district concluded, here Friday.
The Ras Al Khaimah police have spotted 16 dangerous U-turns
where deadly traffic accidents were reported.
He said the installation of traffic signals and U-turns
near hospitals was among the major causes of gridlocks owing to which the patients could not reach on time.
Gulberg's main boulevard was recently remodeled and widened with U-turns
, a signal free project and a flyover costing about Rs1.
All left and U-turns
were closed ahead of the opening of Dubai Tram in November 2014 to ensure road safety.
The move also comes after the successful reopening of left and U-turns
at the intersection of Al Sayora-Al Sufouh Streets at the JBR inMarch as well as the reopening of turns at the intersections of Al Marsa-Al Sayora Streets, Al Marsa-Al Sufouh Streets, and Al Marsa-Al Sharta Streets inJune.
Ground was broken on the four elevated U-turns
at the beginning of February 2015, and MTCC said it has achieved 85% completion of the entire project, with the last of the elevated U-turns
scheduled for delivery by May 2016.
This project is EPC and maintenance of four elevated U-Turns
and associated structures.
A cross-sectional survey based on convenience sampling was conducted at 120 U-turns
in Karachi from February to October 2013.
People must see the number of U-turns
which have been made.
He added, that few dedicated U-turns
are established on GT Road, University Town and Tehkal while work on other U-turns
is in progress.
All the findings from last week - that many motorists do not wear seatbelts, use mobile phones while driving and take left or U-turns
from lanes meant for proceeding straight - were valid this week too.
