Lane restrictions from September 20

The lane restrictions for Commonwealth Games-related traffic will come into effect in the Capital from September 20. The traffic police will conduct a three-day trial run on certain stretches beginning Wednesday to familiarise road users with the arrangements.

Joint Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Satyendra Garg on Tuesday said once the notification for exclusive lane came into operation, violation would attract a fine of Rs.2,000 and the violating vehicle would be impounded.

“People are advised to avoid the exclusive lane during the trials and familiarise themselves with the pattern of traffic movement during the Games. There will be enough signages indicating commencement of the dedicated stretches,” said Mr. Garg, adding that adequate number of traffic personnel would be deployed on the stretches during the trial run between noon and 2 p.m.

On Monday, the trial would be conducted on the lane from Commonwealth Games Village, National Highway-24, Road No.56 and Road No.58A up to Yamuna Sports Complex; Lodhi Road Madrassa to Lodhi Road flyover; Bhishm Pitamah Marg from T-point Lodhi Road and August Kranti Marg to Siri Fort Sports Complex; Ring Road from T-point Bhairon Road to Raj Ghat; and from Chandgi Ram Akhara to Maal Road on Ring Road.

Similar exercise would be undertaken on Thursday from Nizamuddin bridge, Ring Road and Captain Gaur Marg to Kalkaji Mandir; and from Sardar Patel Marg to Mother Teresa Crescent.

Mr. Garg said the trial run on Friday would be on the Road No.56 and Road No.58A to Yamuna Sports Complex; Kalkaji Mandir, Maa Anandmai Marg, Lal Kuan and other roads.
