The swearing-in ceremony of chief minister-designate Arvind Kejriwal is likely to slow traffic movement down for the common commuters on Saturday.
Due to the ceremony, the traffic police said, congestion was expected in several areas located in the vicinity of New Delhi and central Delhi.
“JLN Marg, Rajghat, Delhi Gate, Asaf Ali Marg, Netaji Subash Marg and Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg are some of the roads that are likely to be affected between 10am and 2pm on Saturday,” said Anil Shukla, additional commissioner of police (traffic).
Buses — including the chartered ones — will not be allowed to ply on the Ranjit Singh Marg towards Gurunanak Chowk. No commercial vehicle will be allowed on the JLN Marg from Rajghat either.
Those making their way towards New Delhi railway station from east and north Delhi, the traffic police suggested, should take the IP Marg and the DDU Marg to reach Ajmeri Gate or the Paharganj-side of the station.
“Similarly, commuters headed towards LNJP hospital will be facilitated to reach the hospital through the normal route. Our staff has been briefed to be helpful to patients,” additional CP Shukla said.
