The Delhi traffic police has made special arrangements for the upcoming ASEAN-India Special Commemorative Summit scheduled for December 20 and 21 to ensure smooth flow of traffic.
According to the plan, between Dhaula Kuan and Panchsheel Marg, Sardar Patel Marg will remain shut from 3 pm to 7.30 pm on December 20 and from 11.30 am to 2.30 pm on December 21. Maulana Azad Road, between Janpath and Mansingh Road, will remain closed from 6 am to 12.30 pm on December 21.
The summit will be attended by ASEAN Secretary General, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and heads of states of Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. All the VVIPs will be staying in New Delhi district.
Joint Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Satyendra Garg said, "We have made extensive arrangements to ensure minimum dislocation during the summit.
As there will be simultaneous movement of 11 heads of states on certain occasions on December 20 and 21, there will be traffic restrictions on certain routes in New Delhi district during the summit. Commuters who want to avoid being held up at junctions should avoid New Delhi area."
A traffic official said to ensure unhindered movement on certain routes, the police have made set corridors. This corridor will include Ring Road from Dhaula Kuan to AIIMS, Aurobindo Marg, Lodhi Road, Mathura Road, Purana Qila Road, C-Hexagon, Ashok Road, Baba Kharak Singh Marg, Park Street, Shankar Road and Upper Ridge Road up to Dhaula Kuan, police said.
