A gazette notification released on June 14 said that no vehicle will be allowed to ply on the main Chandni Chowk Road from Red Fort to Fatehpuri Mosque from 9 am to 9 pm on all days.

The road is currently being repaired as part of the Delhi government's beautification project to redevelop the area at an estimated cost of 99 crore. The 1.3-km stretch has been under redevelopment from December 1, 2018. Scheduled to be completed by November 2020, the work got delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
