Monsoon rains and traffic jams are synonymous in most major Indian cities but the motorists in the national capital of Delhi may heave a sigh of relief if traffic police officials are able to successfully implement a series of strategies aimed to decongest key stretches that otherwise get chaotic due to waterlogging.

According to a report by news agency ANI, Delhi Traffic Police officials have identified several major waterlogging spots on main road stretches in the city, 80 to be precise. The plan is to divert traffic away from these roads in a systematic manner in the event of a heavy rain spell.

Traffic police officials say that in case such stretches are closed for traffic movement, adequate number of personnel will be deployed on the ground to ensure commuters are made aware and that there is no spill-off traffic snarls elsewhere. “There are a few points where waterlogging is likely and we have to form a strategy to reduce the possibility of traffic jams in such places. The police planned strategic diversions so that commuters will not get stuck in waterlogging," K Jagdeshan, Special Commissioner of Police (Traffic), was quoted as saying.
