Massive traffic jam in Delhi as water pipeline bursts

Commuters had a harrowing time as traffic moved at a snail's pace on elevated Barapullah flyover, Ring Road between Dhaula Kuan and DND flyover, and Sarai Kale Khan Road.

A massive traffic jam occurred on some of the key stretches in the south and central Delhi due to the emergency repairing of broken water pipeline at Sarai Kale Khan on Thursday and Friday.

Commuters had a harrowing time as traffic moved at a snail's pace on elevated Barapullah flyover, Ring Road between Dhaula Kuan and DND flyover, and Sarai Kale Khan Road.

The water pipeline burst between Sarai Kale Khan and Maharani Bagh leading to flooded streets on Thursday noon. Traffic officials say that a pipeline got damaged during the construction work on Delhi-Meerut expressway.

Delhi traffic police issued an advisory to avoid Sarai Kale Khan stretch soon after damage of pipeline was reported. Still, commuters who were unaware about the affected stretch got stuck in traffic jam for several hours. It led to piling of vehicles on adjoining roads as well.
