As per the latest updates, people are also advised to steer clear off Ring road near the IP flyover from Rajghat to Nizamuddin carriageway. Commuters can instead take alternate route via Shanti Van, Rajghat, JLN Marg, and BSZ Marg to avoid the stretch.
These areas reportedly saw severe waterlogging after a new downpour on Saturday. Commuters bemoaned how difficult it was for them to go where they needed to go. Additionally, following rain, trees were uprooted in places like Tuglak Road, which impeded the movement of vehicles.

Since the rains on Saturday, multiple reports have surfaced of people struggling with flooded roads. The social media platforms are now full of videos and pictures showing people trying to get through water-logged roads by pushing their two-wheelers while the four-wheelers steered their way across such roads.
