Ahead of the Republic Day parade rehearsals and celebrations at India Gate in New Delhi, the Noida police has issued a traffic advisory barring the entry of all heavy transport vehicles (HTVs) to Delhi from Noida.
According to the advisory issued by superintendent of police (traffic) AK Jha, entry of all HTVs to Delhi will be barred from 10pm on Monday.
Various routes in Noida are extensively used by HTVs and other vehicles to reach Delhi. Even vehicles coming from western Uttar Pradesh use the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway, Dadri-Surajpur-Chhalera Road and the road from Noida Extension to Master Plan-III Road to reach the national capital.
The advisory will be effective from Monday night to Tuesday afternoon and from Thursday night to Friday afternoon.
The rehearsal for the Republic Day parade will be held on Tuesday morning at Vijay Chowk – Rajpath- India Gate - Tilak Marg - Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg –Netaji Subhash Marg - Red Fort.
The same route will be used for the main event on the morning of January 26. During the Republic Day celebrations, Delhi will be under a tight security blanket owing to the presence of a large number of VVIP guests and diplomats. The NCR will also be under the watch of security agencies.
“As the Republic Day parade will be held on Friday and its rehearsal on Tuesday, we will be barring the entry of all trucks and other heavy goods vehicles to Delhi through Noida. The regulation will begin at 10pm on Monday and continue till 3pm on Tuesday. Similarly, the restriction will again begin at 10pm on Thursday and continue till 3pm on Friday, the Republic Day,” said Layak Singh, traffic inspector, Noida police.
Singh further said at three points of Noida, entry of heavy transport vehicles will be barred to Delhi.
“These points are Chilla border, Mahamaya Flyover and Delhi-Noida-Direct Flyway connecting road in Noida. However, all other types of vehicles will be allowed to go to Delhi through these three points,” he said.
Singh said HTVs arriving from Jewar Expressway and other roads in Greater Noida will be asked to take a diversion from the spot itself so that they do not enter Noida. This is to ensure that no congestion is caused because of the route restrictions.
“The purpose of our advisory is to ensure that HTVs headed towards Delhi do not enter Noida and are diverted from Greater Noida itself. Such HTVs which enter Noida and head towards Delhi will be stopped at the three points and be asked to turn back,” Singh said.
