He said that the permission was being allowed to heavy bikers on persistent requests by the bikes clubs and this would run as a pilot project.
The IG NH&MP also planted a tree on motorway to kick off tree plantation campaign, as the department itself would plant 100 trees on motorways and highways.

He said that the NGOs and departments must take this responsibility to plant trees, so that they could make greener Pakistan.
