Thursday, 11th March 2021

Ever since violence at the Republic Day rally broke out in the capital, all six carriageways of Delhi-Meerut expressway, NH-9 and NH-24 are closed at the Ghazipur-Ghaziabad border.

There is a continued disruption in traffic movements and massive road jams between Delhi and Ghaziabad as Ghazipur-Ghaziabad (UP Gate) border remains closed because of the ongoing farmers’ protest against the three farm laws which is on its 106th day now.

Similar traffic disruption is also being faced by motorists travelling in areas around outer Delhi’s Singhu and Tikri borders that are also closed due to disturbances there by thousands of farmers from Punjab and Haryana.

To cope with some of the traffic issue, police has diverted a chunk of the movement between Delhi and Ghaziabad to other border points. This added pressure in these areas has led to an unexpected increase in volume of traffic and traffic jams in these areas. The scenario worsens during the morning and evening rush hours.

Details of the closure of borders and other about alternative routes have been posted on the social media, and they get updated from time to time as per Delhi Traffic Police officers.

According to Traffic control, for those travelling between Delhi and Ghaziabad, it is best to use EDM Mall Kaushambi, Anand Vihar, Kondli, Surya Nagar, Apsara, Bhopra and Loni borders as the alternate routes for their commute and avoid the closure of the Ghazipur border route. They said, motorists also have the option of entering Delhi through Noida.

For those commuters entering Delhi from Ghaziabad, Vasundhara and Vaishali it is advised that they take the Anand Vihar (Maharajpur) border and take a left on the road towards Ghazipur roundabout from where they can use the NH-9 and NH-24 as well.

An alternate route they can go for is the EDM Mall border from where the motorists can either use the Ghazipur Mandi roundabout and can have access to the Delhi-Meerut expressway, NH-24 and NH-9 towards Delhi, or they can move towards the road leading to the Ghazipur roundabout and further on.
