Commonwealth Games lanes restrictions from today

New Delhi, Sep 24 (ANI): Traffic restrictions on Commonwealth Games lanes will be implemented from today.

The restrictions will be on the route from the airport to Games Village in Akshardham between 11am and 12 noon and 10pm to 11pm.

Anyone deliberately straying into the lanes while they are operational will attract a fine of Rs 2,000.

A notification to invoke the fine or impounding of vehicle for violators entering the Games lane was issued by the Lt Governor’s office earlier this month.

Those who are found “deliberately violating” the rule will be penalised.

Public is advised to avoid as far as possible CWG lanes in general and Safdurjung Road, Kamal Ataturk Marg, Panchsheel Marg, Sardar Patel Marg, Siri Fort Road, Harsukh Marg, Purana Quila Road and Mother Teresa Crescent Road in particular as these roads are having two lanes in one carriage way and one lane of it is already reserved for Games related traffic.

Traffic police had earlier decided to enforce restrictions on these lanes from Monday, but later postponed it as the organisers said the first batch of Commonwealth Games athletes would not reach the city before Thursday. (ANI)
