Mysore/Mysuru: Following a request by the Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) to Mysuru Police to impose a ban on traffic on the Irwin Road to take up road widening works, City Police Commissioner Dr. Chandragupta has banned the movement of all types of vehicles on Irwin Road up to three months and has urged motorists to take alternate roads suggested by the Police.
Movement of traffic on Irwin Road [from Nehru Circle to Sir M. Visvesvaraya Circle (Ayurveda Hospital Circle) and vice-versa] will be banned for traffic for period of three months.
