Kharghar, a Model Township
Kharghar, a model township
If anything in Navi Mumbai is to be most looked forward to, it has to be Kharghar. Replete with beautiful avenues and landscapes, Kharghar is one of the most artistically-designed nodes of Navi Mumbai, with novel concepts, ideas and system forming the cornerstone of the nodes development.
State-of-the-art roads, along with Pravesh Marg and the famous Utsav and Shilp fountains and greenery alongside are some of the examples. An aesthetically-designed engineering marvel, the Kharghar Railway Station has a parking facility for 450 cars and 750 two wheelers on its roof - a first of its kind in India.
Already growing famous as a residential and educational hub, Kharghar accommodates four mega housing complexes by CIDCO - Spaghetti, Gharkul, VastuVihar and Celebration. Also, many prominent educational institutes are already operating here, grooming smart brains.
Utsav and Shilp
Developed on the lines of Roman architecture, Utsav is a saucer shaped structure on a circular shaft, and gives a milky white shining effect when the water overflows and cascades down the granite stone steps.
The Shilp fountain is carved in Jaisalmer yellow marble, with water falling from a height of 5 meters, creating a dazzling effect all around. Like Utsav, it too never fails to catch the attention of visitors.
With regards to future, it becomes very essential to fulfill Kharghar’s transportation needs by infusing facilities like transport and traffic regulation. Therefore, work of the construction of a long distance skywalk was taken over with the help of ultramodern technology.
1. Length of the skywalk going towards north from Kharghar Railway Station: 1.7 km, length of the bridge to
cross Sion-Panvel Expressway: 126 meters
2. Project Cost:36 crores
