Comments · 383 Views

After a long period, tourist activity in the state’s hill stations has picked up the pace. The weekend rush in Mussoorie led to a large influx of tourists from Delhi-NCR, Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, and Uttar Pradesh resulting in long traffic jams on Saturday evening as well as on Sunday

“It is good to see the rush. We had nearly 100 percent occupancy on Saturday and around 70 percent on Sunday,” said Sanjay Aggarwal, secretary of Mussoorie Hotels Association. "There were long traffic jams on Gandhi Chowk in Landour and at Picture Palace. Both tourists and locals were stuck in traffic jams," complained a local resident.

Police officials said that considering the weekend rush, an additional police force had been deployed to man the traffic, 90 wrongly parked vehicles were challaned and several persons were fined for violating social distancing norms.
