My Comment on an article "Seven Townships Planned Along Delhi- Jaipur Expressway" in The Economic Times Of India dated 06/12/2012 at 5 pm
Building of townships on expressways is a good thing. It will attract people and will reduce the overcrowding of metros and cities. People like to live in pollution free, natural environment rather than live in a polluted and overcrowded city. Further, the property cost in such out of city townships will be lower which will induce them to opt for it. But one point to be taken care is, the provision of transportation system in such townships. People always can't travel in their own vehicles. They require some alternative means also. So township plans should contain a clause for provision of some efficient, cost friendly transport system in their plans.
