To avoid traffic jams or blocked roads, Noida Police has suggested commuters to use metro rail services. The police has imposed restrictions on several goods vehicles from entering Delhi via key roads like Yamuna Expressway and Noida-Greater Noida Expressway among others.

While Noida Police has strengthened security along the border, the Delhi Police is preparing to open key borders to ease regular traffic. Delhi Police said that process to reopen the road below Singhu Border flyover has started. This section was earlier sealed amid the farmers' 'Delhi Chalo' protest. The Singhu border, which serves as Delhi's gateway to neighbouring states like Haryana and Punjab, was closed on February 13. On Sunday, Delhi police also removed huge cement barriers at the Tikri border.
