For daily commuters in Delhi, what has been the experience is now being borne by hard statistics. Centre for Science and Environment’s (CSE) new assessment of travel time and traffic speed in Delhi shows the city is in a grip of a worsening congestion and pollution crisis. A simple exercise for key stretches of 13 arterial roads, based on hourly and daily travel time and speed derived from Google Map – a popular tool to gauge traffic time by residents of Delhi while travelling in the city – shows low traffic speed; near disappearance of non- peak hours; weekends with higher congestion; and higher air pollution with lower traffic speed during peak hours.
