Residents of N and M Blocks in DLF City Phase 2 are at the receiving end of traffic diversions caused by the Rapid Metro Rail project in DLF City.

After the straight route to DLF Phase 2 was cut off by diversions at Cyber City, residents have to take a longer route, which wastes time and fuel. Most of them have been reaching office late.

The diversions were effected by the traffic police after consulting the Millennium City Welfare Society and DLF.

“It used to take 20 minutes to reach my office in Udyog Vihar. Now it takes almost two hours to cover the distance,” said Ramesh Rastogi, resident. “Our area has been neglected for a long time. There is no entrance or exit gate towards the expressway,” he added.

“We either take a long route from IFFCO Chowk or go around DLF Cyber City. But this route is now blocked as well,” said RP Agarwal, resident.

Residents of Phase 2 say they need an exit point or at least an approach road towards this side of the city. DLF officials say the detours were introduced jointly by Gurgaon police and residents’ associations. They say this is a good arrangement.
