Students try and reach exam centres early tomorrow: Traffic Police
New Delhi, Mar 1 (UNI) Taking into account security concerns in view of President Bush's arrival and a host of protest rallies to mark the visit, the Delhi Traffic Police has asked students appearing for the board exams to avoid certain routes tomorrow and instead reach the venue an hour before schedule to avoid inconvenience.
Examinees, whose centres fall in Connaught Place area and on Barakhamba Road, Kasturba Gandhi Marg, Parliament Street, India Gate and 'C' Hexagon and Delhi Gate must avoid last minute rush and reach an hour early for exams, according to a Traffic Police advisory.
Among other places/routes where students need to reach 'before time' are Ring Road, Jawaharlal Nehru Marg -- from Rajghat Crossing to Kamla Market -- and Asaf Ali Road -- from Kamla Market to Delhi Gate.
For those who had up till now been taking Sardar Patel Marg it has been advised that they instead take the Upper Ridge Road, Rao Tula Ram Marg and Shantipath.
As certain routes would be busy due to more and more poeple taking then due to 'restrictions' on some roads students and their parents should better try to reach the exam venue one hour before scheduled time, the advisory added.
