Traffic police on Thursday said a plan was in place to ensure the uninterrupted movement of President Ram Nath Kovind’s motorcade and minimum inconvenience to commuters.

Kovind will be in Ranchi from 1.35pm on Thursday till 11am on Sunday.

According to the plan shared by superintendent of police (traffic) Ajit Peter Dungdung, vehicles and pedestrians will be barred on the road connecting Birsa Munda Airport with Raj Bhavan from 1.35pm to 2.05pm on Friday. From 4.10pm to 4.40pm, traffic will be barred on the stretch linking Raj Bhavan with Central University of Jharkhand (CUJ) at Cheri Manatu via Kanke Road.

From 5.30am to 6pm, the stretch between CUJ campus to Raj Bhavan would be out of bounds for common people.

However, right of way will be given to ambulances.

Dungdung said passengers from northern part of the city could bypass the stretch between CUJ campus to Raj Bhavan and reach the airport via Hethu. “Passengers from the south can take Latma road.”
