Delhi Traffic Update: National Capital Witnesses Lots of GRIDLOCKS on ‘Dhanteras’. Details here:

During the lingering holiday season, there was a massive traffic jam in the national capital as people thronged the markets to shop for ‘Dhanteras’. Traffic came to a halt in several places including Anand Vihar, Karol Bagh, ITO, Ashram, ISBT Road, Mehrauli, Dwarka, Gurgaon Road, Dhaula Kuan overpass, Uttam Nagar, Rajouri Garden, Lajpat Nagar and Connaught Place.

After the traffic chaos, police officers were deployed to the ground to facilitate the movement of the vehicle. According to a senior traffic police officer, they have received several calls about traffic congestion at various intersections in the city. “Karol Bagh, Anand Vihar, Dwarka, Kondli Chowk, Najafgarh, Azadpur Mandawali, Lajpat Nagar, Connaught Place, Janpath, Laxmi Nagar have witnessed heavy traffic congestion,” the traffic officer said.

Traffic moved at a snail’s pace at the red light from the Delhi Gate of ITO, AIIMS, Sarojini Nagar, Kohat Enclave, Prashant Vihar from Jasola to Kalindi Kunj and Rohini West Market, and Narela. “We came to Lajpat Nagar market today for shopping and it took me almost an hour to park my car, because of the excessive crowd, walking on the roads and leaving a space for a single car to pass slowly, said Amrit Sharma, a resident of Pushp Vihar.

Meanwhile, traffic movement was also slow in adjacent parts of the capital. “Compared to yesterday, the traffic movement is quite good today. It took me more time than usual to travel from Gurgaon to Mahipalpur alone today,” said Sangram Singh, a resident of Gurgaon.
