A bus broke down on the Okhla Head bridge leading to a traffic snarl choking Okhla Head leading to Abul Fazal Enclave for sometime on Sunday evening. An auto driver said for the last more than fifteen minutes the road has witnessed traffic jam.
The bus was seen parked at Okhla Head around 5 pm with the conductor standing on the road and waiting for things to get fixed. Residents coming from Abul Fazal Enclave towards Okhla said they came across traffic jam with vehicles moving at snail’s pace on the road. Once ahead of Okhla Head the road was cleared.
A few months ago the road was made one-way with an aim to decongest Jamia Nagar. However, residents have noticed that traffic jam continues to be an issue due to commuters taking wrong side. Most of the time it has been seen that vehicles coming from Tikona that too wrong side leads to traffic snarl in that stretch.
The issue exists on Jamia road with residents lamenting that whenever there is traffic jam residents are seen coming wrong side from Holy Family trying to enter Ghaffar Manzil or Tikona.or Johri Farm. Only a few days ago there was a traffic snarl in front of Jamia School with many residents seen driving their vehicles on the footpath on Jamia side.
