Heavy fog has descended on Lahore and adjoining areas on Saturday, causing suspension of flight schedules and closure of several sections of the motorway.
The visiblity was reduced to 50m to 100m at Allama Iqbal Airport prompting suspension of local and international flights. Zero visiblity at the motorway halted traffic at the sections from Lahore to Pindi Bhattiyan and Sheikhupura. The motorway section was closed for the road between Pindi Bhattiyan to Faisalabad. Commuters are facing immense difficulty while travelling at GT road from Lahore to Okara.
The National Highway Authority strongly recommended the vehicle owners to drive slow and use fog lights while driving.
