How Google Maps Can Help End Gurugram Traffic Woes

Gurugram has partnered with Google Maps to end its traffic woes by providing commuters with timely traffic movement updates via Google Maps.

If you regularly take part in the sluggish traffic of Gurugram, Google Maps can soon help you with that. The city’s traffic stoppages, as well as diversions, will soon be notified on the web mapping service of Google with the help of the Gurugram traffic police.

Commuters traveling on routes such as Delhi-Gurugram Expressway, Gurugram-Sohna Road, Palam Vihar Road, Mehrauli Road, Old Delhi Road will receive these timely traffic movement updates via Google Maps.

The city’s traffic stoppages, as well as diversions, will soon be notified on the web mapping service of Google with the help of the Gurugram traffic police.

A recent report mentions the agreement between the city traffic police with Google to work on the updates. Everything from a test-run, information on route diversions, closed routes, road accidents can be found on Google Maps.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Himanshu Garg said the purpose of this move is to provide commuters with timely information so that they go for alternate routes. This would also help prevent massive traffic jams from happening on the affected routes.

He further noted that, although the traffic movement timely updates are pushed out through social media channels, people still use Google Maps. Therefore, this would be beneficial for a lot of commuters.

While Gurugram is facing the problem of heightened traffic, the case is opposite for Odisha. After the new Motor Vehicle Act is implemented, Odisha people have lessened the use of personal vehicles, which has resulted in a significant drop in the demand for diesel and petrol.
