Motorway police have barred heavy traffic from entering the Salt Range on the Motorway for an indefinite period due to construction work.
Heavy traffic — trucks, trailers, and dumpers — will not between the Balkasar and Lilla interchanges, a stretch of over 50 kilometres.
A press release issued by the National Highways and Motorway Police (NHMP) said the step has been taken to avoid mishaps as the construction work is under way.
Heavy traffic coming Islamabad side would be diverted at Balkasar interchange and that coming from Lahore would be diverted from Lilla interchange, the police said.
