Noida, Delhi Witness Traffic Chaos Due To Farmers’ Protest; Check Routes, Traffic Diversion Details | India News


New Delhi: Farmers who are seeking developed plots from the government as compensation for their land acquisition staged ‘kisan mahapanchayats’ in Noida and Greater Noida on Wednesday to intensify their agitation. They also declared that they will march to Parliament on Thursday, which is expected to cause traffic snarls on the Noida Expressway and the Delhi borders. The police have issued a traffic advisory for the commuters on the expressway, Udyog Marg, DND Flyway and near Chilla Border, as they have imposed restrictions under Section 144 of the CrPC in the district to prevent any untoward incident.

The farmers, under the banners of Sanyukt Kisan Morcha and Akhil Bhartiya Kisan Sabha, assembled outside the NTCP office in Noida Sector 24 and the Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority’s office to press for their demand of 10% of abadi land. They have announced that around 4,000 farmers will converge at the Harola community centre in Sector 5 on Thursday at noon and proceed towards Sandeep Paper Mill in Sector 5 before taking Udyog Marg to reach the Sector 15 roundabout and the Delhi border.


Traffic Advisory For Noida:

Two sections of roads from Sector 15 roundabout to the Sector 6 police post and from Sandeep Paper Mill to Harola Chowk will be completely blocked for vehicles. Officials said that they will also regulate traffic movement as needed during the protest at some critical locations like the Sector 15 roundabout, Rajnigandha Chowk, Jhundpura Chowk, Sector 6 police post, Harola Chowk and the Sector 8/10/11/12 Chowk.

“Vehicles going from Sector 15 to Jhundpura will be rerouted towards Rajnigandha Chowk from where they can proceed to their destinations. Likewise, vehicles from Sandeep Paper Mill will be rerouted towards IGL Chowk in Sector 1 and Rohan Motors T-point. From there, vehicles can go towards Golchakkar Chowk or Ashok Nagar to go to their destination,” said Anil Yadav, deputy commissioner of police (traffic).

He added that vehicles using Rajnigandha Chowk to go towards Sector 18, 27, 37 and other nearby areas will not be affected unless there is a law and order situation.

Moreover, in case of traffic congestion near the Noida-Delhi border on DND flyway, vehicles using the Noida-Greater Noida expressway and Master Plan-1 road will be rerouted towards the Chilla border. Similarly, in case of congestion near Chilla border, traffic will be rerouted towards DND flyway.

They will be joined by other farmers in tractors, which will likely worsen the traffic situation, both on the route they have planned and the expressway, where the police are likely to erect barricades.
