Traffic chaos due to Ideas2016

Express Tribune reports on the traffic chaos on first day of IDEAS 2016:

Traffic woes became worse – as expected – in most parts of the port city on the first day of the ninth International Defence Exhibition and Seminar (IDEAS), which is currently being held at Expo Centre, as major roads leading to the venue remained blocked.

To add to the misery of the people, broken roads inundated with sewage water were used as diversions, which were also not controlled by traffic policemen. Moreover, public buses and rickshaws were also barred from entering major streets of the city.

The traffic started slowing down early in the morning mainly in Gulshan-e-Iqbal when hundreds of drivers, who were unaware of the alternative routes announced by the traffic police, stumbled upon roadblock at University Road.

By afternoon, the traffic system on every major artery almost collapsed causing a gridlock.
