Just a few hours of rain and all the tall claims of effective management of waterlogging by Ghaziabad authorities have come to naught. The city received ample rainfall today morning and NH 24, the lifeline of people in the trans-Hindon area, witnessed bumper-to-bumper traffic. All the way from Rajnagar Extension to Indirapuram, people hardly moved through the jam-packed CISF Road.
The prime reason for this traffic chaos was waterlogging on the Hindon Elevated Road.
"The entrance of the elevated road from NH 24 and its termination at NH-24 was waterlogged. The road is waterlogged, but the traffic is mainly because of the rush of office-goers," said Raj Kumar Pandey, Circle Officer (CO) traffic, Indirapuram.
It always happens in the event of rains, added head constable Kunwarpal Singh.
The elevated road also made headlines of waterlogging when Ghaziabad witnessed huge waterlogging due to heavy rains last month.
"The construction agency of Elevated Road should be brought to dock," Singh reacted.
To this, a commuter added, "We never face such huge traffic because of smooth commute through the elevated road. It has happened today because the road is waterlogged," said Vimal Raj, a commuter.
