New Delhi: 

Commuters between Delhi and Uttar Pradesh faced a tough time as some roads were blocked for traffic due a farmers’ march on Tuesday.

Commuters were also advised to drive through Shahdara, Dilshad Garden, Mohan Garden to reach Ghaziabad.

For going towards Noida, commuters have been advised to take the DND Flyover, Noida link road and Mahamaya flyover.
