Heavy Traffic Jam on Delhi Borders: As a result of the police checks and pickets on Friday, Delhi’s borders experienced heavy traffic congestion.
On the Noida-Kalindi Kunj road, Gurugram border, MG road, Ghaziabad, Faridabad, and Singhu borders, there were lengthy lines of vehicles.
Neeraj, a commuter stranded at the Noida-Delhi boundary, remarked, “Today, I expected traffic to be lighter, but it is surprisingly heavier than usual.”
Non-essential vehicles were directed to use the Eastern and Western Peripheral Motorways and other alternate routes from city borders beginning at midnight on Thursday.
Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGV), Medium Goods Vehicles (MGV), and Light Goods Vehicles (LGV) are prohibited from entering Delhi. However, cargo vehicles transporting essential commodities such as milk, vegetables, fruits, and medical supplies will be permitted entry if they have valid permissions, according to a traffic advisory.
In preparation for the impending G20 summit at Pragati Maidan on September 9-10, Delhi Police has implemented various security measures. These include the deployment of skilled marksmen and armed forces at strategic locations, the intensification of border patrols, and comprehensive security checks.
More than 50,000 security personnel, K9 dog squads, and mounted police units are assisting the Delhi Police in their efforts.
