New Delhi: Vehicular movement was affected
in the national capital this evening as US President Barack
Obama criss-crossed the city visiting Humayun`s Tomb and Prime
Minister Manmohan Singh`s residence.

Traffic on Sardar Patel Marg, India Gate and Race
Course Road bore the brunt of the visit as roads were closed
for some time due to Obama`s programme, a senior police
official said.

The stretch first affected was the route from
airport to the US embassy in Chanakyapuri as it was Obama`s
first destination. "Both the carriage ways on the route Obama
took were closed," a senior police official said.

From the embassy, the Obamas headed to Humayun`s Tomb
from where they returned to ITC Maurya before heading to Prime
Minister Manmohan Singh`s official residence on Race Course
Road.

"Today was a Sunday, so there was not much traffic
problems," the official said.

As the Air Force One ferrying the US President touched
down the airport, security agencies stopped traffic on the
airport exit road that passes through Palam Technical area.
