Two days ago, the Delhi Police had issued an advisory on diversions put in place to regulate traffic coming from Sarai Kale Khan in the wake of ongoing construction work for an underpass at the Ashram crossing. The underpass is being constructed on Mathura Road and the flow of traffic will remain heavy, especially in the peak hours, police said.
To speed up work, the Public Works Department (PWD) had increased its resources and closed the straight and right turning traffic under Ashram flyover coming from Sarai Kale Khan.
Commuters were advised to take a mandatory left turn onto Mathura Road and a U-turn from New Friends Colony red light to come back to Ashram Chowk for going towards Nizamuddin, Mathura Road, or for turning left towards Moolchand Hospital, Ring Road, a statement released by police had said.
