Meanwhile, parents and kids faced problems due to the closing of the roads as the school bus drivers were not aware of the closing of roads and took the regular route. It seemed that neither the parents nor the schools were aware of the traffic advisory for today creating chaos in the morning hours. Parents said that the advisory message should have been properly circulated to the schools and community members a day before to keep things smoother.
On the other hand, committees on the roads were also seen as confused. Traffic Police and local Police were seen handling the situation by barricading different points further to regulate the traffic.
The roads which are closed in different locations are-
