NEW DELHI: Severe traffic snarls were witnessed in central Delhi areas including the ITO junction and Ring Road stretch near Sarai Kale Khan today, following a cave-in of a portion of the road on Bhairon Marg.

Delhi Traffic Police said a portion of the road caved in on Bhairon Marg, where repair work is in progress.

Traffic snarls in and around ITO and Ring Road stretch near Sarai Kale Khan started in the morning peak hour and took a massive shape by 12 PM, throwing traffic out of gear.

Soon, long tailbacks were also witnessed on Vikas Marg and arterial roads in central Delhi.

"To tackle the situation, traffic from Ring Road to Mathura Road has been diverted till the repair work is over," Special Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Muktesh Chander said.
