Sarkhej-Gandhinagar highway in western Ahmedabad is Gujarat’s most happening road and is yet to happen more. Look at the frequent open spaces here and there between shining buildings. When they are developed, this road will be a busy and happening road like no other road across Gujarat. Once upon a time Relief road and Gandhi road in east Ahmedabad were most happening roads. Then entered Ashram road in west Ahmedabad. And soon C.G. road conquered Ashram road and became the most happening, costly, in-demand and in-fashion road in Ahmedabad. Nowadays it’s S.G. road which is most happening.
In the first video at top you can see North to South lane of S.G highway’s heart part, that is from Thaltej cross road to Prahladnagar garden. Thaltej cross road is a road which goes to drive in cinema in west, Shilaj in east, Sola-Nirma university-Gandhinagar in north and Sarkhej in south.
You can see Auda smashangruh(Hindu’s crimation place) along with Lord Shiva’s huge sitting statue. Then you can see green belt which is maintained by C.E.E(Center for environment education). Soon you can see Vishal supermarket, one more supermarket in Ahmedabad. Then in series of buildings you can identify The Grand Bhagvati hotel.Gujarati restaurants like Gordhan thal and Pakwan are also on this patch. At the cross roads of Fun republic multiplex you can see a huge mall is coming up. And beside it there is a Wide angle multiplex. Area from Wide angle to Prahladnagar garden (before Sarkhej on this road) is yet to develop.
In second video you can see south to north lane of this highway(part covered in this video is from Isckon-Fun Republic-Big bazar circle to Thaltej circle).
