Wakad location and connectivity
Wakad has a huge advantage in terms of its location and if you look at where Wakad is exactly located in Pune, you can understand the reason clearly. Being on the western side of Pune, Wakad has prospered due to its smooth connectivity to almost all vital locations within Pune city and also to the National Highways that help reach Mumbai.
Some of the key residential real estate locations of Pune such as Pimple Nilakh, Pimple Saudagar and Aundh lie close to Wakad on its east side. On the South side of Wakad, you have prime locations like Baner, Pashan and Balewadi. On the North side of Wakad there are equally upcoming real estate locations of Pune like Akurdi, Chinchwad and Ravet.
The west side of Wakad is of course the entire sprawling Hinjewadi IT zone. The south areas of Wakad are surrounded by the beautiful Mula river.

Some of the vital roads that pass through Wakad include Wakad Road, the Kalewadi Main Road, and the very crucial Mumbai-Pune Expressway. One can get many buses from the Wakad Bus Stand to reach any corner of Pune city. Also there are many buses available from the nearby Pimpri Bus Stand which can be used to reach multiple locations across Pune. Wakad is also less than 10 kms away from the Chinchwad Railway Station and the Pune Airport is hardly a forty minute drive from Wakad location.  These factors make Wakad a very well connected location and therefore the property market in Wakad, Pune has grown positively and consistently.
Another important reason that residential properties in Wakad are doing well is that some of the established real estate locations in Pune like Aundh and Baner are very close by. Home buyers buying flats in Wakad or booking in new projects in Wakad have easy access to the fantastic social infrastructure that Aundh and Baner offer. Another key area of Shivaji Nagar in prime Pune is also at a stone’s throw distance from Wakad.
Some of the major travel points and key routes pass through or lie close by to Wakad like the erstwhile Dange Chowk Road referred to as Wakad Road currently. Wakad road is a critical road as it traverses the east to north-west direction of Wakad passing through the Mumbai-Pune-Bangalore Highway at Bhumkar Chowk. Going down it also joins with Aundh-Ravet BRTS.
Since the Mumbai-Pune-Bangalore Highway zooms through Wakad, the importance of Wakad is clearly understood. All travelers from Mumbai to Pune or from Pune to Mumbai inadvertently go through the beautiful locations of Wakad.

Wakad is close to major employment and IT hubs in Pune
Apart from being strategically located, Wakad real estate has also benefitted from the fact that Wakad lies in close proximity to some of Pune city’s biggest IT markets and industrial areas thereby providing a lot of employment and earning opportunities to all residents in Wakad.
