According to livehindustan.com, the barricading of the road to Faridabad and Jaitpur from Mahamaya flyover in Noida was removed temporarily to ease congestion that had resulted due to a snag-hit vehicle impeding the flow of traffic near Noida Film City.

The interlocutors appointed by the Supreme Court had yesterday indicated the possibility of the opening of some routes despite the stalemate in talks with the protestors who have refused to abandon their protest venue until the Citizenship Amendment Act they are opposing is repealed.

 

Senior advocates, Sanjay Hegde and Sadhana Ramachandran had first spoken of the possibility after the end of second day’s negotiations with the protestors who have blocked a major arterial road connecting southeast Delhi with satellite town Noida in Uttar Pradesh.

Ramchandran said she along with Hegde visited some alternative routes--blocked by the police—suggested for reopening by some women protestors.

“We urged the protesters to come up with creative solutions to the traffic situation. We are happy that the Delhi police have co-operated with our suggestions and the usage of some roads may soon be restored especially for commuters going towards Faridabad,” Hegde had said on Thursday evening.

The protests at Shaheen Bagh started on December 15, 2019 on Road 13A connecting Delhi with Noida and it led to the police placing blockades at sever other alternative routes in the vicinity leading to severe traffic jams for commuters travelling between Noida, Delhi and Faridabad.
