Truck breaks down on Gurgaon expressway, stalls traffic
Traffic movement on the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway was reduced to a crawl on Friday after a goods-laden truck broke down in the middle of the main carriageway, 6 km from Sirhaul toll plaza on the Delhi side.
This led to two-km-long snarls near Rajokri, where the truck broke down in the morning.
Commuters, mainly those going to Delhi from Gurgaon, had a tough time as it took them more than an hour to cross that stretch of the road.
Officials said the snarl was mainly witnessed on the Delhi side, though traffic remained slow on the Gurgaon part of the expressway, too.
A spokesperson of the Delhi Gurgaon Super Connectivity Limited (DGSCL), the concessionaire of the expressway, said: "After we were informed about the breakdown, our team reached the spot with a recovery van and other equipment to remove the truck. Traffic flow was affected between 9 and 10. 30 am."
