One of the things that we really dislike about our city is the never-ending and infuriating traffic. Urgh! And in such a situation, Delhi Traffic Police has just scooted in as our guardian angels, armed with their plans to decongest the city roads. Scroll on as we tell you more about these plans!
What’s Brewing? | The Delhi Traffic Police has decided to decongest at least 20 traffic heavy stretches in the capital, with ‘location-specific’ decongestion plans. These plans will help in reducing traffic jams and make vehicular movement seamless. As a part of their pilot project, Delhi Traffic Police has already implemented these plans at two locations - Teen Murti roundabout and Shanti Van-ISBT Kashmere Gate stretch near Yamuna Bazaar area on Ring Road.
As per the plan, one-way traffic will be allowed during specific hours on certain stretches of Delhi. According to them, there’s been a reduction of at least 40% in traffic since the implementation of this plan. So, here’s what these peeps have done - they’ve closed traffic on Kushak Road moving towards the Teen Murti roundabout during peak traffic hours in the evening, that is, from 5 to 9 PM. As a result, traffic is diverted to adjacent roads of Teen Murti and South Avenue, which leads to decongestion of vehicles at the roundabout.
No movement will be allowed on the Ring Road from Shantivan Chowk Hanuman Setu on Tuesday and Saturday evenings as a host of devotees rush to the Hanuman Temple at this time, which tends to make the traffic nightmare-ish on this stretch.
Also, the officials have said that traffic from Red Fort and Chandni Chowk on Nishad Raj Marg, heading towards Kashmere Gate ISBT will not be allowed to take a left turn at the Ring Road. So, vehicles will have to go straight on Raja Ram Kohli Marg and take a left on the Ring Road. Also, traffic on Ring Road from Rajghat, bound to Kashmere Gate, will have to take a right turn on Raja Ram Kohli Marg.
Similarly, the Traffic Police have come up with plans to decongest other stretches in the city like Delhi Gate intersection, Kalkaji Mandir crossing, Loni Road crossing, Lajpat Nagar intersection, Majnu Ka Tila, Moti Bagh intersection, Punjabi Bagh Chowk, Uttam Nagar Metro Station and more.
Well, a big thank you to the Delhi Traffic Police for making our lives a little better and here’s wishing them good luck to deftly tackle all the other congested roads in the capital!
