Bumper-to-bumper traffic at Delhi-Gurgaon toll plaza

The 32-lane toll plaza on the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway was chock-a-block with vehicles on Monday morning and evening forcing many commuters to take detours during peak hours to negotiate traffic. Gurgaon Traffic Police, however, said the situation would not improve until the toll plaza is removed.

This is a common occurrence during peak hours.

When contacted by Deccan Herald, Joint Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Bharti Arora said that they do not have control over the toll plaza or denied road accident leading to the bottleneck.

The 28-km expressway sees nearly two lakh vehicles cross the congested toll gate at the entrance of Gurgaon every day.

During peak hours, cars constitute 72 per cent of the traffic with commuters paying Rs 42 to drive to Delhi and back.

The highway operator — Delhi-Gurgaon Super Connectivity — has already agreed to exit the project, a move that will pave the way for the removal of the toll plaza.
