Delhiites and visitors are requested to follow the following guidelines forbetter traffic management:

Observe self discipline while on the roads
All road users are expected to maintain the sanctity of the dedicated Games Lane, which is exclusively for Games related traffic. They should avoid getting into the dedicated lane and if inadvertently they enter the lane, they should immediately come out of it. The breach will invite a major penalty of Rs. 2,000 and/ or impounding of their vehicles of violators entering in the Games Lane
You are advised to avoid, as far as possible, Games Lanes everywhere in the city especially on Safdurjung Road, Kamal Attaturk Marg, Panchsheel Marg, Sardar Patel Marg, Siri Fort Road, Ch. Harsukh Marg, Purana Quila Road and Mother Teresa Crescent Road as these roads have only two lanes in one carriage way, one of which is reserved for Game related traffic
Avoid unnecessary journeys during the Games period
Give way to emergency vehicles, i.e., police vans, fire brigade vehicles, ambulance, etc.
Ban on marriage processions on roads to be strictly enforced during the Games
Any traffic related query/problem can be communicated to Traffic Helpline (tel: 23010101/1095). You may join Delhi Traffic Police’s SMS alert service by typing “join DTP” and sending it to the Delhi Traffic Police phone number 09219592195 to get an update on traffic problems.
