Residents of Noida are likely to face heavy traffic at DND Flyway, Mahamaya flyover, Sector 14 A and Noida-Greater Noida Expressway as the Auto Expo opens to public from Friday. The traffic police, however, claim that they have chalked out plans to tackle the situation.
“Commuters must avoid busy roads for smooth traffic. Policemen are deputed across the roads connecting Auto Expo to Delhi and the commuters must follow their directions. Near the venue, two parking slots -- P1 and P2 -- are for visitors and they are advised not to park their vehicles at prohibited zones,” said Kiran Sivakumar, senior superintendent of police, Gautam Budh Nagar.
Recently, the traffic police got 200 new policemen. All of them are deployed on the streets for better traffic management during the Auto Expo.
“Cranes are on a stand by to remove accidental, broke down and illegally parked vehicles from the venue and from the roads. A fine of Rs 1,000 can be imposed on the violators if they park their vehicles at no parking zone leading to trouble for other commuters,” said Sanjay Singh, superintendent of police (traffic), Gautam Budh Nagar.
The police advised daily commuters to take interior roads to avoid congestion at the main roads where heavy traffic is expected by late Friday evening.
“Till afternoon, there won’t be much trouble. The real traffic will be at night hours when people will return at the closing time of the expo. Personnel are briefed about the possible situations and quick response teams to handle traffic jams are on a stand by,” Singh added.
