Islamabad Revs Up: New Speed Limits Aim for Flow and Safety

Islamabad’s roads are shifting gears! The Chief Commissioner has announced revised speed limits for cars, trucks, and public transport across the city.

This move, coming after adjustments in the previous year, aims to create a smoother traffic flow while prioritizing safety on Islamabad’s streets.

The new limits differ based on vehicle type and location, reflecting a strategic approach to traffic management. Light vehicles (LTVs) like cars and motorcycles will get to cruise a bit faster on major roads like the Kashmir/Srinagar Highway and Islamabad Highway, with a limit of 80 kilometers per hour (km/h).

But heavier vehicles like trucks and buses (HTV/PSVs) will need to stick to 65 km/h on the same stretches.

Safety takes center stage with reduced speed limits in key areas. Traffic will slow down to 30 km/h in built-up areas like Barakahu and around sensitive zones like schools and hospitals.

This tiered approach prioritizes both travel efficiency and accident prevention.
