Delhi Metro to divert traffic on Najafgarh Road

New Delhi: Delhi Metro on Sunday alerted commuters of traffic diversions, for construction work in the upcoming Najafgarh Metro station, starting on Monday. Delhi Metro will divert traffic on the main Najafgarh Road from Monday as it starts construction work on the underground station in Najafgarh.

“Now, one side of the carriageway of the Najafgarh Road near Delhi Gate will have to be excavated since there is severe space constraint in that area. However, it would be restored and re-constructed after completion of the work,” DMRC spokesman Anuj Dayal said.

New diversions planned

Small vehicles coming from Delhi Gate towards Tura Mandi, will be diverted via the Najafgarh-Nangloi road for a period of one year, whereas heavy vehicles will have to take the Najafgarh Nala road via Rajiv Ratna Awas from the Najafgarh — Nangloi road to reach Dwarka Mor.
