Delhi police traffic Advisory ahead of vote counting June 2024

New Delhi, Delhi Magazine: In anticipation of the counting of votes for the general elections, the Delhi Police have issued a traffic advisory detailing significant traffic arrangements and restrictions across the national capital. The general elections, held in seven phases from April 19 to June 1, will have their votes counted on June 4, with specific traffic adjustments to facilitate this process, officials confirmed on Tuesday.

The vote counting will occur at seven designated locations in Delhi. In northeast Delhi, counting will be conducted at ITI Nand Nagri. To accommodate this, traffic movement on Wazirabad Road (Mangal Pandey Road) from Gagan Cinema T-Point to Nand Nagri Flyover will be restricted starting at 5 am on June 4. Traffic will be diverted from the Bhopura border, Tahirpur T-Point, and Gagan Cinema T-Point. Wazirabad Road (Mangal Pandey Road) will be closed to general traffic from 5 am.

Similarly, in East Delhi, vote counting at the Commonwealth Games Village, Akshardham, will also prompt traffic restrictions starting at 5 am. Commuters are urged to plan their journeys in advance and utilize alternate routes to avoid disruptions.

For those traveling towards National Highway-24 from the Sarai Kale Khan/’MGM’ side, the advisory suggests taking the Akshardham Flyover and proceeding to Pusta Road, ITO, or Vikas Marg to reach their destinations. Conversely, commuters coming from the ITO/Pusta Road side should use the Akshardham Flyover opposite the Akshardham Temple to access National Highway-24 for their journey into Delhi.

To ensure smooth traffic flow and safety, commuters are encouraged to avoid restricted roads and maximize the use of public transportation. The advisory also specifically advises travelers headed to ISBT, railway stations, or airports to allow extra travel time and plan their routes meticulously.

The Delhi Police request the public’s cooperation to facilitate a seamless and safe counting day.
