New Delhi: The Republic Day parade rehearsal at Rajpath on Thursday created problems for commuters headed towards Connaught Place and East Delhi.

The rehearsal was conducted at Rajpath-- from Vijay Chowk to India Gate-- and traffic on the 1.5 km stretch was made out of bounds for vehicles, besides restricting its movement on arterial roads.

Many people, who were caught unawares of the rehearsal and were driving via Rajpath to reach Connaught Place, had to take other routes to reach their destinations.

A senior police official said they had issued advisories in advance about the rehearsal.

The full-dress rehearsal will be held on Saturday and similar traffic conditions are expected on that day too, the official said.
