PTC News Desk: Major traffic jams clog roads leading to Delhi as farmers gear up for a massive protest in the capital. At Ghazipur and Chilla borders, linking Delhi with Ghaziabad and Noida, long lines of vehicles stretch for miles.
Ahead of the planned farmers' march, border points such as Ghazipur, Singhu, and Tikri are heavily fortified to prevent farmers from entering Delhi. Concrete blocks and multiple layers of barricades line the highways, aimed at halting tractors and trollies. Barbed wires and nails have also been installed on the roads to impede movement.
Despite talks between farmers and government representatives, key demands, including a law guaranteeing minimum support price (MSP), remain unresolved. To manage traffic, authorities have restricted the entry of goods vehicles via the Greater Noida Expressway and barred travel between Sirsa in Haryana and Surajpur in Uttar Pradesh via Parichowk.
Commuters are advised to take alternate routes. Those coming from the DND border should use the elevated road via Sector 18 from Film City, while those from the Chilla side can utilise the Sector 14A Flyover, Roundabout Chowk, and Sector 15 via Sandeep Paper Mill Chowk, Jhundapura Chowk.
For travel from the Kalindi Kunj Border, the Mahamaya Flyover is recommended. Commuters using the Yamuna Expressway are advised to exit at Jewar Toll towards Khurja and proceed via the Jahangirpur route. For those traveling from the Kalindi Kunj Border to Delhi, it is advisable to take the Mahamaya Flyover. Additionally, when using the Yamuna Expressway, commuters should exit from the Jewar Toll towards Khurja and proceed via the Jahangirpur route.
