If you are on way to east Delhi from ITO, be ready to face traffic jams for the next three days at least.

One carriageway of the ITO bridge would be closed down for repairs for the next three days and the traffic is likely to be affected.

“Of the four lanes of the ITO bridge, the leftmost is being closed down for repairs. We expect an increase of over 25 percent in vehicular movement on this road. Motorists should avoid this stretch if possible,” said Satyendra Garg, joint commissioner of police (traffic).

Traffic police said that motorists bound for east Delhi should take the Geeta Colony bridge or the Nizamuddin bridge to avoid getting stuck in the jam. The Public Works Department (PWD) will carry out repair works on the carriageway from 2 pm onwards on Friday.

“The repair work could also take more than three days,” said the officer. The repair is being taken over the old ITO Bridge over the Yamuna.

The lane is an arterial road and may disrupt east Delhi bound traffic.
