Delhi has, for a long time been the most populated city in the country. Apart from being a teeming city with life and excitement at every corner, Delhi also has probably one of the worst traffic conditions in India. The DTC and Delhi metro have done little to rid us of these issues and those who commute in their own vehicles will tell you that traffic jams are their worst nightmares. East Delhi, an area with particularly bad traffic conditions will now be getting a revamp along its busiest stretch. Here's all you need to know about the upcoming change to the 2-km stretch from Mother Dairy to Panch Mahal Awas.

What's the update?

With the growing number of personal vehicles in the city, roads are almost always jammed, no matter where you are in the city. In fact, it even becomes a chore for pedestrians to commute from one place to another.

To combat the issue of jam packed streets and main roads, the Delhi government has decided to revamp the 2.1-kilometer stretch from Mother Dairy shop to Panch Mahal Awas in East Delhi. The stretch is already well known for its notorious jams, which come as inconvenience to commuters on foot or public transport.

As part of the revamp, the PWD has decided to increase the size of foot paths and even make separate lanes for DTC buses. With the change, they aim to make the place more commuter friendly and beautify it at the same time.

Why the need?

The 2.1-kilometer stretch in East Delhi is already extremely crowded. There is no place for pedestrians to commute, and the issue of small shops here and there makes matters worse. Also, the stretch also has a huge market along the way where vehicles are usually illegally parked.

Also since there are no proper facilities for motorized as well as non-motorized vehicles, the stretch is infamous for the massive number of accidents that plague it almost every week. With the help of the refurbished stretch, these issues could become things of the past. The biggest hurdle to be crossed is that of construction during the renovation. Till then, the PWD will certainly provide enough detours so that you can bypass the construction work.

Of late, this is one of the best developments we have heard of for Delhi. Upon gauging the response from citizens, the PWD could aim to renovate several other highly crowded routes as well, making for safer, more convenient roads across the city.

Maharashtra Unlock: BMC issues new relaxations for Mumbai amid lockdown

Mumbai suburban 'local' trains will not resume operations for the general public.

The Maharashtra government on Monday decided to continue with Level-3 COVID curbs in 14 out of the 36 districts here, including state capital Mumbai. While partial relaxations are awarded to the other 22 cities, the high caseload and emergence of fresh infections in the listed regions have discouraged the administration from withdrawing the restrictions in these regions.

Parallelly, the state has authorised the local civic body to decide the level of curbs in 3 of these 14 districts, namely Mumbai, Mumbai suburban and Thane. As such, the BMC has permitted all shops (except malls) to open here till 10 PM. The local trains will, however, remain shut for all passengers.
