The agitation led to barricaded roads, creating traffic snarls in several areas of the city with commuters being diverted from many points.
On Wednesday, traffic jams were reported from the eastern, southern and central parts of the city as the situation worsened because of the closure of the Ghazipur border, Delhi-Meerut expressway, NH-9 and NH-24. The closure of almost all the lanes of NH-24 has resulted in bumper-to-bumper traffic on roads in the eastern parts of the city.
The Ghazipur border remains fully closed. Traffic has been diverted from NH-24, NH-9, Road no 56, 57 A, Kondli, Paper Market, Telco T point, EDM Mall, Akshardham and other areas. Traffic was also heavy on Vikas Marg, IP extension and NH 24.
