To increase the effectiveness of the plan, its coverage should be increased. There is a need to increase the cameras of the Safe City project and improve the monitoring at the entrances of Islamabad.

On this occasion, Senior Vice President Islamabad Chamber Faad Waheed said that there is a need for a sustainable policy to solve traffic problems in the city. Traffic engineering needs to be used during road construction to avoid ruts, ruts and other problems.
