Traffic flow restored in some parts of Delhi

 The Delhi Traffic Police said on Saturday that several roads in the national capital, which were previously closed due to the overflow of the Yamuna River, have now been reopened. As the floodwaters recede, normal traffic movement has been restored in some parts of the city, bringing relief to commuters and residents in affected areas.

The receding water levels have allowed cops to lift the road closures and reopen key some routes.

According to a traffic advisory issued on Saturday, water level of Yamuna River receded from a 45-year-high of 208.60 meters to 207.67 meters at 8 a.m. on Saturday.

The advisory further said that the Chandgi Ram Akhara to Mukarba Chowk carriageway and Chandgi Ram Akhara to IP College, both carriageways, have been opened.

“The Ring Road-Majnu Ka Tilla-ISBT-Shanti Van-IP flyover to IP Depot, both carriageways, Ring Road-IP Depot to IP flyover to ISBT carriageway, Salim Garh bypass, Old Iron Bridge Pusta to Shamshan Ghat, and Outer Ring Road-Mukarba Chowk to Wazirabad carriageway are still closed,” the advisory read.
