Flood waters are receding in New Delhi, and as a result, some roads that were closed due to the floods have been re-opened on Monday. While there are still traffic jams, people are happy that the restrictions on these roads have been lifted.
According to a traffic advisory, the water level of the Yamuna River has gone down, allowing for the opening of some roads for traffic. However, there are still traffic regulations in effect on certain roads.
The advisory states that Bhairon Marg and the Ring Road from Sarai Kale Khan to IP Flyover to Rajghat are now open for light vehicles. However, the Ring Road from Shanti Van to Monkey Bridge — Yamuna Bazar-ISBT is still closed.
The advisory also mentions that the Ring Road is open from ISBT Kashmiri Gate towards Timarpur and Civil line Mall Road side. However, the section from Majnu Ka Tila to Hanuman Setu is closed. Additionally, the carriageway from IP College to Chandgi Ram Akhara is closed as well.
The advisory explains that the carriageway from Chandgi Ram Akhara to Shanti Van has been closed because opening it may compromise the safety of commuters.
Finally, the advisory suggests an alternative route for commuters going to Nizamuddin. They can use the road from Hanuman Setu to Salim Garh bypass to IP Flyover and then take a left turn from IP Flyover to Vikas Marg — Loop on Laxmi Nagar — Akshardham — NH-24.
