Delhi Pours: Major highways flood, causing chaos in the traffic

On Friday morning, after a prolonged period of heavy showers in several areas of northwest India, water-logged roads once again caused significant traffic jams in Delhi and the nearby satellite cities of Gurugram and Noida. Even on Thursday, reports of traffic bottlenecks came from various areas of these cities.

The Delhi Traffic Police issued a warning on Twitter advising commuters to avoid specific city stretches owing to waterlogging. The Libaspur Underpass, the Andheria Mode toward Vasant Kunj, the Nizamuddin Bridge, the carriageway on MB Road leading to Sainik Farm, and the CDR Chowk from Mehrauli leading to Gurugram are among them. After Thursday's downpour, the Delhi-Gurugram expressway was already knee-deep in water.

Additionally, many locals used Twitter to express their outrage over what they perceive to be blatant civic apathy. Many neighbourhoods, including Okhla, Sarita Vihar, and Aurobindo Marg, among others, have complained about the poor state of the slow traffic flow. 

Gurugram and Noida are seeing an equally dire scenario, with many offices apparently ordering staff to work from home for the day. “It took me two hours to reach Dwarka from Cyber Hub in Gurugram on Thursday evening. Finding a cab itself was a task but the journey was worse still," said Tanay Mukherjee, a banker. “I have decided to WFH for the day today because I cannot afford to lose time in going to and returning from work."
