Noida expressway faces six hour long traffic jam!

It was an exhausting day for the thousands of commuters as they were stuck in a massive six hours long traffic jam on the six-lane Noida-Greater Noida Expressway. The jam was caused because of an overturned truck on early Thursday.

The traffic movement was affected adversely between 8am and 2pm as it took the traffic police nine hours to restore normal traffic.

The accident took place at around 4:30 am on the Expressway near Sector 96, nearly three kilometres away from the Mahamaya Flyover towards Greater Noida, when the goods carrier overturned.

"It was a truck of a capacity of roughly 150 tonnes, and it was loaded with heavy construction machinery. We called for the local 40-tonne crane, but it failed to do the job. Later, we called Ghaziabad for a heavier crane with a capacity of 100 tonnes. We were able to turn the truck upright using both the cranes. However, all through, our exercise did not disrupt traffic movement", said Ram Nayan Yadav, superintendent of police (SP).
