ISLAMABAD – Key motorway routes witnessed dense fog that paralyzed life, and caused disruptions amid the flow of traffic.

On Wednesday, fog engulfed the plains of the Punjab province, and several Motorway sections have been shut due to low visibility, National Highways & Motorway Police (NHMP) said.

Motorway police shared updates on social media, announcing closures and adding that Motorways will be opened when the visibility level improves.
