  1. Deputy Commissioner Swat
    It might give us a temporary relief but in long run a complete traffic Management plan is needed. The management plan may include:

    The New Road should be made one way.A complete ban on unregistered rikshaws, motorcycle and cut vehicles. A public transport service may be introduced inside Mingora City. A complete ban on parking on road sides inside the city. A fee may be introduced for entry in Mingora City. The fee charging zone should include the area between these chowks: Green Chowk, Nishat Chowk, Sohrab Khan Chowk, Gulshan Chowk, Taj Chowk.

  2. These efforts are appreciated but in a long run district administration provincial govt federal govt have their own responsibilities
    If health facilities at Tehsil levels are upgraded load on mingora saidu will be lessen
    2ndly if possible govt offices shd be shifted from city area for example SNGPL shifted office to fizaghat
    And autorikhshas shd be distributed among different Tehsils and a specific number shd be allowed in mingora
    A parking of must be made obligatory for banks commercial plazas school and colleges

  3. Mostly the Traffic jam issued is Created by Ptcl pools and as well as Electricity Pools,it should be installed on the side of the roads, its much resolved some of the traffic jam issued easily.
