R-Day rehearsals to hit traffic from tomorrow

January 16th, 2007

New Delhi: Traffic will be diverted on several roads in central Delhi on January 17, 18, 20 and 21 to make way for Republic Day parade rehearsals. The diversions will be in force only in morning from 9 am to 12 noon.

The rehearsals will be held on Rajpath between Vijay Chowk and India Gate. The participants of the parade will assemble at Vijay Chowk so roads on both the north and south sides will remain closed till the last contingent passes through. Other roads where snarls are expected include Rafi Marg, Janpath and Man Singh Road.

The traffic police have asked motorists to avoid the Vinay Marg-Shanti Path route to travel to the heart of the city, and instead, take Sardar Patel Marg-Panchsheel Marg-Simon Boulevar Marg-Upper Ridge Road-Shankar Road-Mandir Marg.
