Infrastructure Highlights: India’s March Towards The Future

Infrastructure is a key indicator of a nation's development. In the current scenario, India has been seeing a sustained infrastructure development. The expenditure on infrastructure rose by 10%, its total worth being Rs. 3,96,135crore. The sector has seen the launch of initiatives such as 'Housing For All' & 'Smart Cities' with a view to fast-track India’s progress. Indian urban centres are also seeing tremendous infrastructural investment and here are 5 significant initiatives that are likely to have a major impact in the not so distant future:

Bangalore just launched its 1st Metro phase
Bangalore's metro has expanded commute options to ease pressure on its roadways. The city very recently launched metro services; it connects JP Nagar, all the way till Nagasandra. The initiative is under the Smart Cities mission with a budget of ₹ 107 crore. The length of this phase is 42 kilometres.

Chennai's Satellite Bus Terminal
Chennai is developing better ways of commuting for its citizens, one of the projects being its satellite bus terminal located in Madhavaram. This project will cover 8 acres of land and will have capacity of handling 200 buses per day, thus improving connectivity and easing traffic.

Hyderabad to get its metro
The city of Hyderabad already ranks among the top Indian cities with a high standard of living (Mercer’s Quality of Living Rankings for 2017). Currently, this city is working towards building its own metro system. The projected length of this project is 72 kms, passing across 3 corridors. This project will set up 64 metro stations out of which 32 stations will have buildings or parking spaces.

Trans Harbour link in Mumbai by 2019
Known to be India's longest sea bridge, this link will cover a length of 22.5 kilometres. It would bind Mumbai and Navi Mumbai through roadways. The areas it would connect are Sewri, South Mumbai and Thane Creek, north of Elephanta Island. Also, it will provide access to the proposed Navi Mumbai International airport in the future.

Mumbai's Costal Road
Mumbai city is looking forward to decongest its traffic by building a 30km long costal road. This project will connect Mumbai's iconic Marine Drive, all the way till Kandivali. The total investmentfor this project is worth Rs. 12,000 crores. The project aims to bind South Mumbai to the Western suburbs and ease the road & rail commuting pressure in the Western line.

The infrastructure developments that are taking place, spell good news for India’s future. All corridors of transport that we construct will eventually raise values of real estate properties. We at House Of Hiranandani have great offering of apartments in Bangalore, Chennai & Hyderabad that ensure great connectivity and hassle-free commute.
