CHENNAI: The city traffic police and Kancheepuram district police have planned temporary arrangements to ease traffic flow on East Coast Road (ECR) and the Old Mahabalipuram Road (OMR) during the Modi-Xi meeting on Oct 11 and 12.
Motorists using GST Road, Anna Salai, Sardar Patel Road, Rajiv Gandhi Salai and East Coast Road are advised to plan their journey accordingly since traffic might go at a snail's pace. The police have asked educational institutions, IT companies, commercial establishments and motorists to be prepared accordingly.
Heavy vehicles and tankers will not be allowed on the mentioned roads from 6 am to 11 pm on Oct 11 and 12.
"The two-wheelers and cars will (only) be diverted during the movement of VIPs. We may restore the normal traffic movement earlier than the timings mentioned if the VIP vehicles pass through ahead of time," a senior traffic police officer told Express.
