The past few days have been massive traffic snarls and woes for commuters in Delhi-NCR due to closure of some key stretches as well as the rain showers. Various images of vehicles wading through water and stuck in traffic at Delhi-Gurugram Expressway are being seen after rains.

Meanwhile, the Chirag Delhi flyover has been partially closed for repair work from March 12 for 50 days, and a section of the Delhi-Jaipur Highway (NH-48) between Rangpuri and Rajokari has been closed for construction work from March 14 for 90 days. The first phase of repair work for the Chirag Delhi flyover will last for 25 days from March 12 on the Nehru Place to IIT Delhi flyover carriageway and for another 25 days on on the IIT Delhi flyover to Nehru Place carriageway.

The Delhi Traffic Police has advised commuters to avoid these routes and take alternate ones instead as well as plan their travel in advance.
