New Delhi: Motorists in Delhi and Gurgaon were on Friday evening caught in massive traffic jams with an estimated 30,000 weddings being performed.
Long queues of vehicles were seen on major arterial roads. It reportedly took at least an hour to travel from South Extension in south Delhi to Terminal 1 of the Indira Gandhi Airport.
Getting to Gurgaon was a nightmare too. There were kilometre-long jams on the Gurgaon Expressway. Crossing the toll plaza from Delhi towards Gurgaon took at least an hour.
Micro-blogging site Twitter is abuzz with tweets on the jams.
"Seems whole Gurgaon & Delhi are hosting wedding... Barat Traffic Jam all over," a tweet said.
"Delhi traffic is mad today. Guess the venue for those 30k weddings has been changed from Mumbai to Delhi :( (sic)" tweeted another.
Some motorists coming from the Delhi-Noida-Delhi toll road towards south Delhi were stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic.
"Luv #Delhi..stuck in traffic jam from dnd to IIT gate and further.. (sic)," a tweet said.
