The Gurugram district administration undertook a slew of measures today after high levels of PM 2.5 were found.
Besides closing down schools, all brick kilns, hot mix plants and stone crushers have also been shut down till further orders.
As the entry of heavy goods traffic has been banned into Delhi by the state government, the Gurugram Traffic Police will be diverting heavy traffic from entering into Delhi. Some traffic congestion on NH 48 is expected for which sufficient traffic duties are being deployed.
If current situation persists for next 48 hours, a decision will be taken to stop construction activities, said the administration.
Apart from it, the police have been directed to take swift action against visibly polluting vehicles along with strict enforcement of PUC (pollution under control) norms. (ANI)
