In order to ensure smooth vehicular movement on the day of polls, April 10, the Gurgaon traffic police has issued a traffic advisory, specifically curbing heavy and commercial vehicles from certain stretches.
Due to polling, commuters have been asked to avoid the stretch near Dronacharya College and Railway Road from April 9.
The entire stretch from Agrasen Chowk to Sector 4 and 7 will be blocked as will all the adjoining roads.
As many people will be travelling from Delhi and other neighbouring places to vote, officials expect traffic jams at major junctions.
“We are expecting a lot of congestion in and around polling booths on Thursday. We request the vehicles to follow the directions given by the traffic police,” said Bharti Arora, joint commissioner (traffic).
Officials on election duty have been asked to use public transport as most booths will not space for parking.
And in those booths with parking, duty buses will be given the first priority.
No heavy vehicles will be allowed inside the city from 6 am to 12 am.
Commercial vehicles will not allowed to enter the city from all neighbouring states, cities and borders of Delhi, Jhajjar, Mewat, Faridabad, Alwar and Rewari from 12 am on Wednesday to midnight on Thursday.
Security measures in the city too have been increased and a strict vigil will be kept on all state borders, said a police official.
Restrictions have also been imposed on the movement of two-wheelers and light vehicles near polling booths.
Elaborate arrangements have been made for the movement of traffic inside the city. Traffic cops have been deployed across all major junctions and intersections to ensure there is no congestion in the city.
