Meanwhile, commuters facing the turmoil for past three days got a bit of relief following specific diversions made in the traffic movement on Thursday.

The Hanuman Setu over-bridge was made one-way during busy traffic hours—-9 am to 12 and 4 pm to 8 pm.

During morning hours, merely vehicles were allowed to move from Hanuman Temple towards Parivartan Chowk while the vehicles would be allowed to move towards the Temple Road during evening hours. The road would be one-way during these hours..

However, light vehicles are allowed to move both ways between 12 to 4 pm. The Setu Road would be open for light vehicles both ways between 12 to 4 pm and 8 pm to 9 am next day.

Onkar Singh said the Daliganj and Nishatganj bridges could be used by the commuters between 9 am to 12 and 4 pm to 8 pm both ways.

The SP Traffic further confirmed that no heavy vehicles including tractor-trolley, heavy trucks, DCM, Swaraj Mazda and any other carrier vehicles would be strictly banned on Daliganj and Nishatganj bridges during daytime.

These vehicles would be allowed to ply only after 11 pm till 5 in the morning.

Besides, Singh said, such vehicles would be strictly banned on Hanuman Setu round-the-clock.

He said that to ensure the compliance of the order the circular has been dispatched to the police stations on city outskirts and those in trans-Gomti and the old city areas. The traffic cops have also been asked to keep a close watch on plying of such vehicles, Singh said.
