Chaos reigned in Gurgaon for the second consecutive day on Thursday after heavy rainfall in the morning led to waterlogging in several parts of the city and slowed down the pace of traffic.

Gurgaon Police, again, took to Twitter to advise people to “drive carefully, switch on the headlights & maintain lane discipline”. More than 1,000 police personnel were deployed across the city to maintain control over the situation. “The largest number of our personnel were deployed at Hero Honda Chowk and Atul Kataria Chowk,” said Y Puran Kumar, DCP (Traffic).

The Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) also used social media to reassure people that “water logging has not started. But we are all geared up”. T L Satyaprakash, Deputy Commissioner, and Commissioner of the MCG, issued directions to “rush 100 per cent engineering staff” to the field.

Several areas, including Atul Kataria Chowk and the Sheetla Mata Mandir Road, remained submerged until afternoon. The service lanes of NH8 were waterlogged as well. Nearly 2-ft of water accumulated on the roads around Medanta-The Medicity.

MCG officials said measures were being taken to prevent a repeat of the waterlogging and gridlocks that hit the city a little over a month ago. “Certain focus areas have been identified and work will be done over the next one week to resolve issues there. These are Sector 9, DLF Phase 3, Palam Vihar, Medanta Medicity, and Sector 7,” said an official.
