Ghaziabad being Uttar Pradesh’s one of the oldest and largest cities and advantageously situated on the eastern periphery, is a developed city. It is rapidly turning into a residential hub, specifically for the young working professionals who have to commute from Delhi to Noida on daily basis. It is not only a residential hub but an industrial hub as well, considering the number of factories. There are not one but many reasons that the city is becoming a desirable destination for home buyers who are looking for an affordable and comfortable livelihood.
Ghaziabad started drawing buyers’ attention with various infrastructural developments that majorly enhancing the connectivity. The key growth dynamics of the area comprises of the widening of the NH 24 as the major factor that is stimulating the city’s growth, operational metro connectivity from Dilshad Garden to New Bus Stand which is expected to be operational soon, High Speed Rail (RRTS) between Meerut to Delhi, International Cricket Stadium in Raj Nagar Extension, Delhi – Meerut Super Expressway and finally Delhi – Meerut Super Expressway.
By means of developed infrastructure, better connectivity and inexpensive house rent, Ghaziabad is drawing a swelling number of homebuyers and has made its space in the smart city race among the other cities. Following are the development projects that took place or the coming up projects in the city:
The widening of NH-24 will open several pockets for development, and transform the area in and around the highway into topmost housing hubs. NH 24 has from the inception has been a crucial route and was known for traffic jams. Therefore its expansion plan has anticipated more importance in the wake of frequent traffic jams and deficiency of public transport.
Delhi – Meerut Super Expressway
The second phase of Delhi-Meerut Expressway is expected to open by March this year. This Expressway will boost the property market in Ghaziabad as it is already the builders’ hub. This infrastructural construction would increase the demand from both investors and end consumers in regions like Raj Nagar extension, Modinagar, Crossings Republik, Vaishali, and Indirapuram.
High-Speed Rail (RRTS) between Meerut to Delhi
Another proposed link between Delhi and Meerut that will reduce the travel time is RRTS. A high-speed Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) corridor – this means that people will be able to commute between the two cities in just 60 mins. The project aims to provide passengers with “business-class luxury.” The train commences its journey from Sarai Kale Khan till Modipuram in Meerut covering 92Km.
International Cricket Stadium in Raj Nagar Extension
This is a huge infrastructural development and the major reason to boost the real estate market in Ghaziabad. The International Cricket Stadium in Raj Nagar Extension is another huge project that is coming up in Ghaziabad. The Hon’ble CM of Uttar Pradesh while inaugurating a cricket stadium at Lucknow announced that a world-class international cricket stadium with 45,000 seating capacity is soon to be constructed at Raj Nagar Extension.
