Gurgaon traffic advisory: If you are planning to travel to or via Gurgaon on Tuesday, you should follow the traffic advisory issued by the local police. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to attend Haryana’s Golden Jubilee celebrations at the millennium city this afternoon. In the advisory, police have asked motorists to avoid major roads.
According to the advisory, some diversion and restrictions have been made from the security point of view as along with PM Modi, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and other VVIPs are expected to attend the function at the Tau Devi Lal Stadium here, a senior police official said.
Motorists going to Rajeev Chowk, Subhash Chowk and Hero Honda Chowk have to go via Baktawar Chowk and Sohna Road. While those coming from NH-8 and going toward Sohna Chowk will go via Hero Honda Chowk and not exit from NH-10, those going to Subhash Chowk will be sent via Hero Honda Chowk. To go to Baktawar Chowk it is suggested to follow the Jhadsa Village road from Jhadsa Chowk.
The diversion will start from 2 pm and go on till mid-night. The PM is scheduled to address the gathering at 4.30 pm.
Notably, the Haryana chief secretary has notified Tuesday as a public holiday on account of Haryana Day for Gurugram district under Section 25 of Negotiable Instruments Act, 1881. This, along with the festival of Bhai Dhooj, might bring down traffic on the streets considerably and the PM’s visit might not turn out to be the nightmare that Gurgaon is used to especially after heavy rains. The order is not binding on private companies though.
