ABBOTTABAD: Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Police, Hazara Range, Akhtar Hayat Khan said on Wednesday that 40 sawmills were closed and more than 100 trucks impounded to stop timber smuggling.

Talking to The News, he said the timber smuggling had been stopped all over the region. He said traffic warden system would be introduced in Abbottabad to overcome the traffic problem.

The official said the new system would help improve the flow of traffic. The official said the transparency would be brought in issuing licensing. He said a new traffic plan was being made to regulate the flow of traffic.

He said most U-turns on the Mansehra Road would be abolished and two new parking lots on government-private basis would be set up to address the parking issue. Akhtar Hayat said to reduce traffic load on the Karakoram Highway (KKH) two new bypasses would be built. He said Rajoia Road would be refurbished to divert traffic from outstations to Galyat, which would reduce the traffic pressure on the KKH.
