However, on a more serious note - its fascinating to know how less time it takes to cut across Delhi on days such as these. That too a stress free drive.
Not a single check-post or diversion on the election day, not a single point of congestion. Even if you were to travel in off-peak hours, driving through NCR is an absolute pleasure. I did go from Greater Noida to CP in flat 30 minutes without over-speeding at 10 PM once, sometime in early 2014. CP to Gurgaon is also 30 minutes via the Chanakyapuri - NH8 post 10 PM that I did experience many times.

We all like to crib about our own city roads, but NCR takes the cake when you talk of signal free and fast roads going connecting the extreme points in the city. Compare that with experiences in any other Indian large city, you might be surprised how many kms one can cross in Delhi-NCR even during the peak times.

BHPians from Delhi, need an info on route in Delhi itself

I travel from Dwarka to CP via Dhaula Kuan. Wanted to know if there is a route by which I can avoid the Dwarka Underpass, Airport merging traffic and then the RTR split traffic from NH8.

There is a route available in the maps as below. I am quite hesitant to take this turn during office hours as this seems to be military zone and I am not keen to take a U turn after traveling quite a few distance here.

I have highlighted the route, please do let me know if this route can be taken and I can reach Dhaula Kuan directly from inside lanes.

I don't understand this map as Delhi Cantt can be confusing but I hope you do understand my directions.

My office is in Aurangzeb Road so I take this route daily.

While going towards CP after the dwarka flyover take left from the first signal.
You will then reach a single lane road with two way traffic.

Take the first right - how would you get to know? You'll see a lot of vehicles trying to take the right. Alternatively you can take the second right too, it connects to the same road.

Go straight, as the road ends there will be a signal turn left. This is the case with both exits mentioned above.

keep going straight till you reach the gopinath circle. turn right aka third exit (towards gopinath market).

Keep going straight from the gopinath market, you'll reach a round about. Continue straight there's a compulsary left.

Now there's a compulsary right. TADA! you're at dhaula kaun. Take left continue till CP.

This route is a km or two longer but considering the underpass mess and the chaos near the airport it is much faster.

P.S : You can PM me for directions, maybe you understand it better on the phone. Also on the route I've suggested above there are no restricted roads. My school was in Delhi Cantt so I know this entire route.

I think you won't be allowed on that route (after crossing Thimayya Marg) without defence Id. You can take a left to stay on Thimayya Marg and then join the Delhi cantt road passing through Sadar. This will see you join the NH8 right opposite Dhaula Kuan airport express metro station. As for congestion, I am not sure if it will be any better during the office timings.

Alternatively if one goes via Gopinath Bazaar without entering Parade road or other restricted areas this route is much faster to reach Central Delhi. I've been using this route for about the last one year. I'm a civilian

Thank you for the detailed directions, got the pointers to check on for my route hunting

So this means, I can take that route and try out. I had been very hesitant in taking that route for the fear of taking a U turn after a few kms inside cantonment zone. Will try out the steps as given by you. Though I think I need not touch Dhaula Kuan as I take San Martin Marg since Sardar Patel Marg is choked due to the two signals.

Using this sadar bazar route I can touch ring road and can avoid the signal at Cariappa Marg + Dhaula Kuan Metro station crosssing as well.

Will try out and post directions.

Thanks, so that means Thimayya road can be used till Gopinath Bazaar and from there go via Church Road.

I was specifically talking about the Parade road. Not the entire route within Cantt. Good to know it is faster than the NH8 route
