The road connecting Faridabad to Noida which was blocked for the last 69 days since the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protests began at Shaheen Bagh in south-east Delhi was opened briefly on Friday morning before it was blocked again by police barricades, said reports.
Media reports also state that the barricading of the road to Faridabad and Jaitpur from Mahamaya flyover in Noida was removed temporarily to ease congestion that had resulted due to a snag-hit vehicle impeding the flow of traffic near Noida Film City.
An ANI tweet discovers that the route has now opened after a shutdown for 69 days.

One of Shaheen Bagh’s interlocutors Sanjay Hegde says, “We urged the protesters to come up with creative solutions to the traffic situation. We are happy that the Delhi police have co-operated with our suggestions and the usage of some roads may soon be restored especially for commuters going towards Faridabad,” Hegde had said on Thursday evening.
Senior advocates, Sanjay Hegde and Sadhana Ramachandran had first spoken of the possibility after the end of second day’s negotiations with the protestors who have blocked a major arterial road connecting southeast Delhi with satellite town Noida in Uttar Pradesh
