With a view to facilitate the residents of newly developed Sector E-11/3 and emerging Sector D-12 as well as the residents of Golra and adjoining villages, Deputy Commissioner Islamabad Amer Ali Ahmed has directed initiation of a new route number 139, which will commence from Tramri Chowk and terminate at E-11 Markaz.

The residents and the trader community of E-11 had been demanding this for a considerable time since a large population centre has emerged in the vicinity yet there were no transport links prior to this action of the administration.

In another move, route number 105A from Secretariat to Sector G-15 via Sector G-11 has also been approved. This route shall facilitate the commuters for travelling to the courts and Islamabad Administration offices located in G-11.

Deputy Commissioner has directed Secretary Islamabad Transport Authority (ITA) that the route should not only exist on papers rather it should be implemented and in case of violation strict action shall be taken against the ITA. Secretary ITA shall be responsible for implementation of route. The transport authority was also directed that it should be regularly checked that routes were being completed and action should be taken against the violators.
