Republic Day 2021 Traffic Advisory: The Delhi Traffic Police has issued a traffic advisory for the Republic Day parade on January 26. “There would be elaborate traffic arrangements and restrictions in place for smooth conduct of the parade and tableaux along with respective routes,” the advisory stated.
The Republic Day parade will begin at 9:50 am Tuesday from Vijay Chowk and proceed to the National Stadium, while tableaux will start from Vijay Chowk and move towards Red Fort ground. The wreath-laying function will be held at National War Memorial at 9 am.
Movement of traffic on certain roads leading to the route of the parade will be restricted. No traffic will be allowed on Vijay Chowk from 6 pm on Jan 25 till the parade is over.
Road users have been advised to avoid the route of the parade and tableaux from 4 am to 12:30 pm, the advisory said.
Metro will remain operational during the parade on Jan 26. However, boarding and de-boarding at certain stations will not be permitted for short periods of time.
The Delhi Traffic Police has also asked commuters to avoid the routes where protesting farmers will hold their tractor rally, or ‘Kisan Gantantra Parade’, on Republic Day.
Farmer unions had on Sunday finalised three routes, originating from Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur border points, for the rally. “Avoid taking NH44, GT-Karnal road and NH10 as these will remain affected due to the tractor rally,” an official said at a press conference. Arrangements have been made to manage traffic on these routes starting Monday evening, he said.
