Residents and travellers on the axis now ply the road early morning and late in the night due to construction work that is going on there.

There is persistent heavy traffic on the expressway since about two months ago due to the demarcation of the road by Julius Berger, the construction firm building the road.

The firm says that it will take it six months to finish work on the road.
