Gurgaon, June 20 (IANS) Showers lasting over half an hour on Monday afternoon brought much relief to the Gurgaon residents, but also led to water-logging and traffic snarls.
Water-logging in both new and old Gurgaon, including several stretches on the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway, caused problems for local residents and commuters alike after the rain that began around noon.
Long traffic jams were witnessed at various points in the city. Traffic on the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway (Delhi-Jaipur National Highway) was disrupted at the Hero Honda, Jharsa, Iffco and Shankar chowks (intersections) as service lanes were filled with rainwater.
Traffic on both sides of the Gurgaon toll plaza (Kherki Daula) was also affected.
National capital Delhi too was lashed by pre-monsoon rain on Monday.
