Traffic congestion awaits commuters in areas surrounding ITO as civil society activist Anna Hazare threatened to start his fast at Jai Prakash Narayan Park near Delhi Gate from Tuesday, despite Delhi Police denying him permission.
If his suppporters start crowding the park, there may be traffic jam at arterial roads such as Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg, Jawaharlal Nehru Marg and Netaji Subhash Marg. It may have a cascading effect on the Ring Road.
Shortage of parking space near the venue is another concern. The park, close to Ferozeshah Kotla stadium, has no Metro connectivity. This will prompt supporters to come to the venue in their private vehicles. Sources said arrangements for parking will be made near Rajghat and Mata Sundari Marg.
