Travelling on a wide Delhi road at night





So here I was staying late in office for some work, and then it was already 11 PM and time to go home. I work in Noida and around 15 km from my house, so I dutyfully go to the car, and after traversing Noida's internal roads, including the stretch in front of Nirula's and McDonald's where the metro construction has slowed traffic down, got onto the Noida link road to the Akshardham flyover. Till now, traffic was okay.
Once I get onto the Noida link road, at this late hour, you can positively luxuriate in the wide roads with little traffic. So down went the accelerator, and up went the speed. Just have to careful that one does not speed up too much, since there are stretches of this road that are not very well lighted up, but a speed of 80 kmph was normal. This entire stretch went by in a jiffy.
The next stretch on NH24 from the flyover till Ghazipur signal and then onto Anand Vihar ISBT is not that wide, but since traffic was low, was able to move on fast and reach home quickly.
This is one of the good parts about Delhi, the roads are so wide and well made (mostly) that when the traffic is mild, one can travel long stretches without stopping and reach destination quickly. This is one thing that I have not seen in the other big cities of India.

Hey there,
Thanks for visiting my blog.

Good to find a blog on Delhi. I have lived there for a couple of years long ago (1991-91), and they are the most memorable years of my school life! We used to live in Vikaspuri, west Delhi. Try to post some pics of that area when u get a chance to go there!

Compare this with the mess existing in Bangalore. Even post 10 PM, traffic slugs, and there are people cursing each other and making strang signs at you :).

So much for the IT city of Asia. Actually for the people who have never visited this city - it is a saddening almost heart-breaking experience - since they come here with the notion of a great IT city of the world but find a terrible mass of traffic, and unwelcoming angry locals.

Oh, Delhi traffic can be troublesome during the peak season. There is nothing to beat Delhi during summer traffic peak season, people get hot, cars break down and so on.
But driving on Delhi roads, especially the central ones is another beautiful experience altogether.
