What are traffic police doing to ensure smooth passage to vehicles?
There are many residential colonies on either side of the road and that's why there are quite a few traffic signals along this stretch. We are now adjusting the timings and cycles of these traffic signals and synchronise them. A slip road is being constructed to connect the parking lot at Siri Fort.

Experts also suggest closure of couple of cuts to reduce number of traffic signals.
Since there are a number of residential colonies on either side, residents may resent it if we close couple of turns. It will also increase pressure on the remaining traffic signals. You need a lot of space to construct U-turns else it leads to further snarls. We are still open to suggestions.
