HYDERABAD: The Khairatabad flyover stretch and roads leading to it witnessed a massive traffic jam due to the ongoing assembly session on Tuesday morning.
While commuters caught unawares by serpentine snarls turned restive, traffic police personnel were seen running around, trying to unwind the hold-ups.
“I was stuck on the flyover for nearly half an hour this morning. Even as the traffic police were trying their best to clear the traffic, it took really long for the vehicles to even start moving,” said Mohammad Fazi, a commuter.
The massive traffic jam which was first witnessed on the Khairatabad flyover had a ripple effect in other parts of the city as well, including on the Nampally road towards Lakdi-ka-pul, Shadan College and VV Statue. Similarly, from Lakdi-ka-pul towards Ravindra Bharathi and Nampally side.
“The traffic jam on the flyover and the roads leading towards Lakdi-ka-pul and other areas was due to the assembly session. Our officials on the ground are clearing the rush,” said a senior officer, Hyderabad traffic police.
