Union Minister Nitin Gadkari today instructed NHAI to immediately rush a team of senior officials to Gurgaon to ensure smooth flow of traffic on NH 8, which has faced severe water-logging and massive traffic jam following heavy rains.

The road transport, highways and shipping minister asked NHAI Chairman Raghav Chandra to personally monitor the situation, a Road Ministry official said.

The ministry has also directed NHAI to take all necessary steps in this regard, the official added.

For the second day today, Gurgaon was caught in back-to-back traffic after heavy rains lashed Delhi’s satellite city, leaving thousands of commuters stranded and forcing authorities to issue prohibitory orders.

Schools were also ordered to shut for two days.

Prohibitory orders were imposed near Hero Honda Chowk in a bid to decongest the traffic gridlock.
