The Noida police has announced traffic diversion on two major routes, besides cordoning off some city roads to ensure smooth movement of vehicles and managing heavy footfall at the venues where Dussehra festivities will be held.
The festivities will be held at two venues — Noida Stadium and Sector 62 ground — on Saturday and a heavy turnout is expected for the events.
The Noida traffic police announced that all roads surrounding the Noida Stadium and Sector 62 ground will be shut for vehicular movement.
“From 2pm on Saturday, two traffic diversions will be in force to regulate the movement of vehicles. These diversions will continue till the burning of effigies on Dussehra is completed late in the evening,” said Layak Singh, traffic inspector, Noida police.
According to the police, those who use the route from sector 12/ 22/56 trisection to the Noida Stadium will have to use alternate routes. Similarly, four other routes — intersection of sectors 8,10,11,12 to Noida Stadium and Spice Mall intersection, Metro Hospital intersection to sector 12/22 intersection, sector 31/25 intersection to Spice Mall intersection, sector 31/25 intersection to Spice Mall intersection, Somerville trisection to Spice Mall intersection and Jalvayu Vihar intersection to Spice Mall intersection — will be closed for vehicular movement.
“Basically, we will be barring entry of vehicles on all routes surrounding Noida Stadium. Pedestrians can enter the stadium using Gate Number 4 and such vehicles that have passes will be allowed to enter through Gate Number 5,” said Singh.
Vehicles moving from sector 10/21 junction to Ghijore via sector 12/22/56 trisection will have to use Jalvayu Vihar trisection and then take the Nithari trisection to reach Ghijore. Similarly, traffic from sector 12/22/56 trisection moving towards Nithari via Noida Stadium route will have to use the Sector 57 intersection and then move through Ghijore to reach their destination.
At the Sector 62 venue, traffic police will put into effect the diversions when the volume of vehicles increases and leads to snarls.
“If there is a need, we will block movement of vehicles from Sector 62 police post road to the Fortis Hospital trisection. Instead, these vehicles will have to use the PMO trisection and Mamura trisection to reach their destination. Similarly, movement of vehicles from Fortis trisection to Sector 62 Police Post will be barred and they will have to use the Mamura intersection,” Singh said.
