Delhi to conduct traffic trials during peak hours

Delhi's traffic police will conduct trials on road lanes reserved for ferrying the Commonwealth Games athletes and officials during the morning and evening rush hour over the next two days, a statement said Sunday.

A traffic police advisory said the trials will be held between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Monday and 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. Tuesday.

'The trials will be conducted on Ring Road from Chandgi Ram Akhara to Mall Road, NH-24-Ring Road crossing to Gazipur crossing on NH-24, Ma Anand Mai Marg in Kalkaji to Doctor Karni Singh Stadium at Surajkund Road via MB Road and Panchsheel Marg-Sardar Patel Road intersection to Mother Teresa Crescent upto RML Hospital,' said Satyendra Garg, joint commissioner of police (traffic).

He said the trials will be conducted during peak hours to gauge the impact. The trials were held between 12 noon and 2 p.m. last week.

The exclusive road lanes for the Games athletes and officials will become out of bounds for all other road users from Sep 20.

Those who stray onto these lanes will be penalised Rs.2,000 and their vehicles will be impounded. Initially, the restrictions on the Games lanes will be operational during night time only as international flights carrying athletes are scheduled to reach the capital during these hours.

The public has been advised to avoid, as far as possible, the Games lanes in general.

They have been advised to avoid Safdurjung Road, Kamal Ataturk Marg, Panchsheel Marg, Sardar Patel Marg, Siri Fort Road, Harsukh Marg, Purana Qila Road and Mother Teresa Crescent Road in particular as these roads have only two lanes in one carriageway and one lane has already been reserved for Games-related traffic, the statement said.
