Massive traffic jam on Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway
Commuters on the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway faced a massive traffic jam on Friday.
Police claimed that the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) was responsible for the nearly five km traffic jam on both sides of the expressway near <g data-gr-id="19">Sirhol</g> border.
“The reason for the jam was that NHAI, upon the orders of the high court, without proper advisory, closed 7 out of 11 lanes. As a result people were caught unawares,” Gurgaon police said in an official statement.
“Upon receiving the information about the jam, Gurgaon traffic police acted swiftly and removed the barricades put up by NHAI,” a senior police officer said. The NHAI officials did not comment on the issue.
