External Transport Connectivity

The GIFT area is accessible from NH-8 (Delhi to Mumbai). Railway line passes by the site on the west (to Delhi) and east (to Himmatnagar). The distances from Gandhinagar & Ahmedabad Core City are 8 kms and 12 kms respectively. GIFT is regionally connected with places, which will open its door for further development and prosperity of the city.

GIFT has been designed in considerations of Transit Oriented Development and high FAR, hence the strong connectivity through various systems have been envisaged to connect it with Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar. GIFT has been planned and design for more than 1 million of direct and indirect employment. This will have a huge impact on transport requirements considering the number of trips that would be generated to and fro from the city.
