Headline: Heavy rains paralyze Delhi traffic

New Delhi: Heavy rains in Delhi this week threw traffic out of gear at several places, as waterlogging crippled vehicular movement in parts of the city causing hardship to commuters.

The areas where water stagnated following the afternoon showers included the Savitri Cinema flyover and the Pamposh Enclave bus stand.

An  official said 4.6 mm of rainfall was recorded in the city.

Waterlogging was also reported from Badarpur Border to MB Road near the railway under pass, Apollo to Asharm Chowk, Okhla Mandi and under Chirag Delhi flyover, Delhi Traffic Police said.

“Traffic in the carriageway from Shahdara to Apsara Border was very heavy due to potholes near Chintamani Chowk,” they said.

Areas in Ganesh Nagar to Nirman Vihar, Khajuri Chowk, Hamdard to Vayusenabad, Vijay Chowk, Mangal Market, Mandadali and Nand Nagri Depot were also waterlogged causing slowing down or halting of traffic.

Traffic was also heavy in the carriageway from Peera Garhi to Tikri Border, Nangloi to Najafgarh, and under Modi Mill flyover due to water stagnation bringing hardship for commuters.
