New Delhi: Friday may see you driving down a different DND- free from the dreaded traffic jams that have been making your rides home or office such a nightmare. The DND users will be benefitted from this move as heavy traffic snarl on Mathura Road had been causing incovenience
The reason? The administration has barred the entry of all medium and heavy vehicles on the road between Badarpur border and Ashram Chowk from 7-10 pm. 
The ban has been released by the traffic police and it will remain in effect till the 22nd of February. 
 
The decision was taken after a meeting with transporters from Faridabad who have agreed to take the Sohna Road and NH-8 to enter the capital. This should ease the traffic on this stretch which has reached nightmare proportions ever since the Kalindi Kunj Bridge went under repairs from December 22.
