Getting out of Khan Market will be a smoother exercise with the NDMC creating a dedicated exit from Lok Nayak Bhawan, leading straight to Humayun Road.
Currently, some points are used by motorists to enter and exit the market and they all lead to Subramaniam Bharti Marg, in front of Khan Market.
The New Delhi Municipal Council on Saturday removed encroachments on Amrita Shergill Marg. Visitors will now be able to take a right turn from the road which was blocked so far.
"While working on the redevelopment plan of the community centre at Khan Market, we stumbled upon the drawings of the Land and Development Office. We found out from the records that the Amrita Shergill Marg extended all the way to Humayun Road, which had been encroached upon over a period of time," said Amit Prasad, spokesperson of NDMC.
"A boundary wall had been constructed by people and some hutments had come up there. We have removed all of them," said a senior NDMC official.
According to the civic agency, this exercise will ease traffic circulation within the market as well as on the main roads. From now on, motorists will have two exits from the market.
The market sees around 3,000 visitors per day and this move will help keep a check on the traffic flow.
