Traffic police officers said that they are trying to encourage commuters to avoid these routes so that accidents can be avoided. Once the water levels subside, they will post a similar update so that commuters can start taking the route again.
Earlier this year, the Public Works Department had issued a circular saying that underpasses traffic around underpasses in Delhi, will be stopped temporarily, if the area is flooded and the depth of the water crosses 20 cm, in order to avoid accidents.
