Multiple routes leading to and from Sector 18, the commercial hub of Noida, which attracts a large number of visitors on New Years’s eve, will remain diverted from 4 pm on Tuesday till 2 am on Wednesday, the Noida Traffic Police said.
The Kalindi Kunj road that connects Noida and Delhi will remain out of bounds for commuters for a straight 17th day, the traffic police said on Monday.
Security has been tightened in the area and the police have strongly cautioned people against drunken driving in an advisory for the New Year’s eve.
Sector 18, the biggest commercial hub of the city, houses hundreds of shops and scores of restaurants that witness thousands of visitors on December 31.
Certain sections near the Sector 18 Metro station have been made “no parking zones” and the police have asked people to avoid violation of the law, according to the advisory.
Police have also requested people to use multi-level parking in Sector 18 instead of leaving their cars along the roads.
“Breath analyser test will be carried out and penalty issued to those driving vehicles after consuming more than 30 milligrams of alcohol,” the traffic police said.
