Gilgit city has expanded significantly during the last couple of decades. Markets, plazas, offices and residential buildings have been constructed in a hap-hazard manner in almost all parts of the city. The city’s population has swelled exponentially. The roads, however, remain narrow. Encroachments by vendors and shopkeepers, market-owners and other actors have further lessened the narrow roads’ capacity to facilitate smooth flow of traffic.
