Name A Road Poll

This newest chic-road in town, Noor Jehan Road, might be buzzing with trendy cafes like Coffe, Tea & Company (CTC) and new upscale outlet openings including NEXT, Ammar Bilal and The Body Shop and now, soon, there will be Gloria Jean’s Coffees too; though, many people think that to rival M.M.Alam Road in all aspects, Noor Jehan Road’s name should have been something ….. different!

So, go for your vote in the following poll:

Note: If your option is not in the list, you can drop it in the comments section :)

P.S: Noor Jehan Road is the one that leads to Pepsi Factory wala area while you are coming from Liberty and cross Hussain Chowk straight without turning left or right.

    CTC deserves the credit for making this road popular… so lets just call it CTC-wali Road.
    Besides, according to PS, the portion of the road onward from Hussain Chowk isn’t named NJ Road.

    Mian Mehmood Ali Qasoori Road ehh?

    If we cut out the Qasoori part, it would become M. M. Ali Road. ;)

    The road that passes behind Hafeez Center is named Hali Road – now that’s a better name.

  14. suh (unregistered) on November 23rd, 2007 @ 8:51 pm

    that must be the old name, the new name is noor jehan road as gov. and media always mention it when they talk about its renovation and all the advertisements of xinhua mall and next say noor jehan road.
