A heavy downpour virtually turned the roads of Gurgaon into a hell for motorists as heavy waterlogging led to long jams on July 28. With traffic on Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway still running at snail pace, people had spent over 7-10 hours getting struck in long jams all across the Millennium City.

The district administration has advised schools and offices to remain shut in view of the flooding and traffic mess. On July 29, even Delhi Traffic Police advised motorists going from Delhi to Gurgaon to avoid NH-8 due to traffic jam on NH-8 near Hero Honda chowk, Gurgaon.
