With the home department clearing the final route map submitted by the promoters of the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon-2012, the row between the traffic police and the promoters has finally been resolved, said highly-placed sources in the home department.

DCP (traffic), Nandkumar Chougale, however, said the traffic police had instructed the promoters, Procam International, to wrap up the event by noon.

"Routes will be open to traffic as soon as runners pass by. We have asked the promoters to complete the prize distribution ceremony before the deadline," he said.

Bruno Goveas, director of media relations for Procam, said, "We will start the armature marathon by 5.40am so that we can abide by the deadline."
