Chandigarh, August 22

Traffic jams were witnessed in and around Tribune Chowk here on Tuesday evening. Commuters experienced delays of 20 to 25 minutes while covering a stretch of less than a kilometer.

Ravi Kumar, a resident of Zirakpur en route to Chandigarh, mentioned a 25-minute travel time between the Poultry Farm roundabout and Tribune Chowk. Long queues of vehicles were observed on all roads leading to Tribune Chowk, extending as far as the GMCH-32 rotary.

Even two-wheeler riders were stuck in snarl-ups.

The traffic police managed the situation by manually regulating the traffic flow. A traffic cop on duty attributed the congestion to a substantial influx of vehicles.
