Top-tier security in Delhi

The Delhi Police also informed that other traffic regulations which are already in place since September 8 will continue to remain in force. Top-notch security formed the backdrop for the first day of the G20 summit in Delhi, as world leaders gathered under one roof to attend the G20 meeting at Bharat Mandapam on Saturday. This included vacant highways and congested cellphone networks.

To ensure watertight security during the gathering, the city was declared a no-fly zone and mobile signals at the venue were jammed to prevent any breaches, the security establishment left no stone unturned while also balancing the vigil with passenger convenience. The traffic management plan prepared for the big ticket summit in the Delhi-NCR area has been implemented since 9 pm on September 7 and will continue till the mega event is over.

Commuters called on helpline number

On Saturday, the first day of the G20 Summit, the Delhi Traffic Police said many commuters made calls on its helpline number asking about the least affected routes to reach their destinations, officials said. As the traffic was moving without any hassle in the city, the officials however, said they received only one call about traffic congestion in south Delhi’s Chirag Delhi area on its helpline 011-25844444 as it is a holiday.

G20 Summit Virtual Help Desk

The traffic officials tried to resolve the queries of commuters who asked about the available routes across the national capital, the officials said. The commuters have been advised to follow real-time traffic updates on the ‘G20 Summit Virtual Help Desk’ for route suggestions for commuting to and fro the airport, railway stations or bus terminals, the officials said. Police have advised people to use the navigation app ‘Mapmyindia’ to move around the city with ease and get real-time traffic updates on its virtual help desk.
