Most of you who travel daily via Airport Rd would know that 'authorities' are creating a new U-turn after the Rawal Rd-Airport Rd link for both sides traffic. That place already sees a lot of accidents because people coming from Rawal Rd immediately start moving to the right side to take the U-turn.
Accidents mostly happened there because traffic going towards airport is descending from the airport rd flyover so mostly cars are @ > 60-80km/h speed. Old U-turn was around ~1km from Rawal Rd-Airport Rd link while the new U-Turn is ~250m from Rawal Rd-Airport Rd link.
Already in the last 2 days, I've seen traffic choking at the new U-turn and cars coming down from the flyover braking heavily, I am afraid that the ratio of accidents there will increase because of this.
This was just for traffic going towards Airport, now the traffic which is going towards Airport Rd Flyover (towards Chaklala) is also suffering because of the U-turn because the U-turn comes soon after the bend (as you can see in the image below) and now people have to immediately veer to the left because of 1) U-turn 2) huge 2-3 inch cateyes on the fast lane (which is now the U-turn lane)
Here is a pictorial reference picture which will pretty much clear everything:

And if anyone from the relevant authorities is reading this thread then you guys need to rethink about your new U-turn and think of a 'better' way for a U-turn for Airport traffic.
New U-turn is @ exactly this spot : https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/attachments/spotted-crashed-wheels/1516710d1418376480-city-crash-rawalpindi-1418376340550.jpg
