Delhi Police has made elaborate arrangements for movement of spectators for Opening Ceremony of Commonwealth Games on Sunday.

Traffic Police will be imposing certain restrictions on the movement of traffic on certain stretches and guiding spectators for the Opening Ceremony so that they can reach the Jawahar Lal Nehru Stadium without any inconvenience.

No parking will be allowed near Jawaharlal Nehru stadium, Ajay Chadha, Special Commissioner of Police (Traffic), told reporters here.

He appealed to people to use public transport to reach the venue.

"There is no parking for spectators in the vicinity of Jawahar Lal Nehru Stadium for the Opening Ceremony of Commonwealth Games. The spectators coming for this Ceremony are advised to take public transport to reach the Venue," the official said.

"People are requested to take Metro train to reach Jawahar Lal Nehru Stadium. Spectators taking Gurgaon-Jahangirpuri Metro line are to get down at Jor Bagh Metro Station. People taking new Metro line between Central Secretariat & Badarpur should get down at JLN Stadium Metro Station or Jangpura Metro Station," he said.

Delhi Transport Corporation is also providing focal point buses from 31 locations in Delhi and NCR to facilitate movement of spectators from different parts of Delhi and NCR. These focal point buses will take spectators to Sunehari Pulla parking on Lodhi Road from where they can walk to the Stadium.
