New Delhi: Delhi traffic police have cancelled Monday`s trial runs on the dedicated Commonweatlh Games (CWG) lanes due to waterlogging on most of the roads.

"The traffic peak-hour trials that were set to happen on Monday stand cancelled due to waterlogging caused by a heavy downpour," a senior traffic police official told IANS.

The trials, scheduled Monday and Tuesday, were timed at peak hours, 4 pm to 6 pm, and 8 am to 10 am respectively.

Traffic police officials said this was necessary to complete the rehearsal at peak hours to familiarise everyone with the traffic situation that will come into play from Sep 20.

Those who stray onto these specially demarcated Games lanes will be penalised Rs.2,000 and their vehicles will be impounded.
