Unending traffic jams returned to the capital’s roads after the end of Delhi’s 15-day long road rationing trial. Several commuters had taken to social media to express their delight at relatively traffic-free roads during the odd-even rule.
According to Delhi Traffic Police, the number of cars on the road decreased by 30% during the first fortnight of 2016.
These cars are back on the roads and thereby making most arterial roads like ITO, Ashram intersection, Dhaula Kuan, National Highway-8, Rao Tula Ram Marg,Outer Ring Road near Munirka, IIT, Hauz Khas and Chirag Dilli, Ring Road near South Extension, Lajpat Nagar and Maharani Bagh congested. Even the interior roads around Vasant Kunj, Vasant Vihar, Dwarka, Punjabi Bagh, Rajouri Garden and Defence Colony were clogged.
