The Delhi Traffic police said the half carriageway width from Darya Ganj to Kashmere Gate would be closed for all vehicular traffic for nearly 30 days upto April 20 in the first phase.
The Traffic police said when the carriageway of N.S Marg from Darya Ganj to Kashmere Gate is to be closed, then all buses would be diverted from Delhi Gate to Rajghat-Ring Road-Shantivan-Hanuman Setu-ISBT-Tis Hazari-Morigate-Pull Dufferin-Old Delhi Railway Station (ODRS).
