In the wake of widespread public outcry over the inconvenience being caused by trailer trucks on roads, the traffic police have extended the no-entry timing from four to five hours in the morning and from four to six hours in the evening.

Haphazard parking of large trucks near the Maruti Suzuki plant in Palam Vihar has been making the life miserable for the residents.

Although the residents of Sector 22 and 23 have welcomed the timing change, the industry sector isn't very happy.

Earlier, the timing was 7am to 11am and 4pm to 8pm. The new timing is from 7am to 12 and 4pm to 10pm.

Facebook users also have appreciated the move.

"That's great. I hope this will solve the problem of traffic jams," said a resident.

Another resident of Palam Vihar, Mansi Kumar, said, "It is a relief as I used to take a detour to avoid the jam in front of Maruti plant. I hope it is implemented."
