5 Upcoming Infrastructure Projects That Will Redefine Virar
Virar is now regarded as the biggest housing destination in Mumbai. With a mega-investment of Rs. 10 lakh crores, the government and regulatory authorities are pushing the envelope on the infrastructure projects in Vasai-Virar. The completion of these projects will forever transform Mumbai while simultaneously making Virar one of the most sought-after residential addresses.
Historically, the majority of homebuyers have shifted from South Mumbai to Western Suburbs. Thus, the city saw the emergence of iconic addresses like Bandra, Andheri, Goregaon, etc. Currently, the market is shifting its attention towards the far end of the western suburbs—Virar. To cater to the dream of this emerging market, Mayfair Housing, the most dependable real estate builder in Mumbai, has announced the launch of Mayfair Pride Homes, where every home-seeker is a Proud Owner. Igniting a revolution in Mumbai, this new category of homes promises lifelong celebrations and limitless opportunities.
While Virar is a naturally-gifted location with expansive greenery that promotes healthy living, these 5 upcoming infrastructure projects in Mumbai will set modern benchmarks for lifestyle and opportunities.
Virar-Versova Sea Link
The project will provide direct connectivity from Virar to Nariman Point, reducing the travel time to just 1 hour. This ambitious undertaking is an extension of the under-construction Bandra-Versova Sea Link. The 43 km sea link project is planned as a 4+4 lane main bridge that will have 3+3 connectors at Charkop, Uttan, Vasai and Virar. It is backed by government funding of Rs. 50,000 crores and is expected to be completed in 2023.
Ahmedabad-Mumbai Bullet Train
Mumbai-Ahmedabad High-Speed Rail (MAHSR Bullet Train) is a 508.17 km under-construction project that will reduce the travel time between the two destinations to 1 hour. It is estimated to cost about US$15 billion, from which a loan of US$12 billion is granted by Japan at a historical interest rate of 0.1%. It is estimated to be completed by 2026. Virar is one of its twelve proposed stations, thus putting the location on the speed track for infrastructure development.
Virar-Alibaug Multimodal Corridor
The 126 km long Virar-Alibaug multimodal corridor is set to open economic opportunities and residential growth for the region. It will connect NH-8, Bhiwandi bypass, NH-3, NH-4 and NH-4B, Mumbai-Pune Expressway, NH-17, etc. The Multimodal Corridor will be a crucial step towards developing, strengthening and creating job opportunities in seven growth centres in MMR such as Virar, Bhiwandi, Kalyan, Dombivali, Panvel, Taloja and Uran. The estimated year of completion is 2026. After which, the travel time from Virar to Alibaug will be reduced by 50%.
Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor
The 1504 km long route is a first-of-its-kind conceptualised corridor that is set to connect two megacities, viz. Delhi and Mumbai. It will pass through the States of U.P., Delhi NCR, Haryana, Rajasthan, Gujarat and Maharashtra. Its end terminals will be located at Dadri in the Delhi NCR and at Jawaharlal Nehru Port (JNPT) near Mumbai. Estimated to be completed in 2023, the project will open key trade corridors and industries for Virar.
Metro Line 13
The 23 km-long proposed metro line will stretch from Mira Road to Virar. With 20 proposed stations in between and other adjoining metro lines, the completion of the project in 2026 will ease the connectivity of Virar with the whole of MMR.
