Commuters had a tough time as traffic came to a halt in many parts of the national capital due to waterlogging following incessant rains that lashed the city on Friday.
People were stuck in jams at many places due to waterlogging, while breakdown of vehicles at certain places also turned distressing for commuters. The ITO was severely affected as people were stuck in mile-long traffic snarls from afternoon till evening.
Besides, the Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg, Deen Dayal Upadhyay Marg and the area around the India Gate were also affected.
In Old Delhi, people were hassled while commuting to the Chandni Chowk, the Red Fort and Old Delhi Railway Station areas.
Areas in trans-Yamuna like Seelampur, Wazirabad, Shahdara, Zaffrabad, Yamuna Vihar were also affected. In east Delhi, the area around Anand Vihar ISBT was also affected.
The Delhi Traffic Police’s Twitter handle had a busy time posting updates about the traffic situation.
“Road has been blocked due to fall of a big tree on Madhav Rao Scindia Marg near Kerala School,” it posted.
Another update from the handle read, “Obstruction in traffic in the carriageway from Mangolpuri flyover towards Peera Garhi due to breakdown of a DTC bus.”
