A location is said to good or bad based on how convenient it is for its residents.

It also takes about and 18 minutes drive from DHA Lahore to get to this magnificent society. UET Lahore has set up a new campus which is exactly 5 minutes away from Lahore Smart City. You might be thinking why Lahore Smart City is not situated somewhere inside Lahore?
