Owing to the ongoing construction of an underpass road across various intersections of Noida, the traffic police have issued an advisory listing route diversions for commuters for the next 15 days. The Noida Authority is constructing an underpass road at intersections in sectors 24, 25 A, 32 and 33 A to ease traffic flow in the city.

Due to the ongoing construction work, various roads have been shut down by the traffic police. These include the one connecting Noida City Centre Metro station to the NTPC intersection. The traffic police has, hence, issued an advisory announcing route diversions for Noida-based commuters.

“The route diversions announced for Noida commuters came into effect from midnight on Friday night. The vehicles coming from Sector 60 or Ghijore and going towards Noida City Centre could take the elevated flyover and the inter-change road to reach Prakash Hospital near Sector 33A and NTPC intersection. Upon reaching Prakash Hospital, they can use the narrow lane alongside the hospital to reach the main road connecting the Noida City Centre metro station,” said Layak Singh, traffic inspector, Noida Police.

Similarly, commuters coming from Sector 60 to Nithari or sectors 31 and 25, could use the elevated flyover and the elevated interchange road to reach NTPC Chowk. After reaching the NTPC intersection, they could take the underpass road to reach Nithari or sectors 31 and 25 intersection.

“Commuters coming from Noida City Centre Metro station and heading towards Sector 60 could drive to sectors 32 or 33 A, turn right on way to sectors 33, 34 and 53 intersection in order to reach Ghijore or Sector 60,” Singh said.

Noida traffic police have also announced route diversions for vehicles coming from Spice mall intersection.

“Motorists coming from the Spice Mall intersection could drive to sectors 25 and 31, which records light traffic and turn left to reach NTPC intersection. From there, they could head towards Sector 60,” Singh said.
