INDIA: The Nagpur Metro in Maharashtra has established the record for the longest double-decker viaduct metro, a significant accomplishment. This viaduct is about 3.14 kilometres long and spans along Wardha Road.

Nagpur Metro embarks on a record-breaking spree

At an event on Tuesday in Nagpur, Maharashtra, Guinness World Records recognised Metro Managing Director Brijesh Dixit for his accomplishment. Dixit mentioned during the event that the team’s most significant obstacle for the Nagpur metro viaduct was finishing the Wardha Road project.

The Asia Book of Records and the India Book of Records, respectively, have already acknowledged that it is the longest such structure in Asia. There are three of them.

Maharashtra Metro and NHAI collaborated on the construction of this double-decker viaduct for the Nagpur metro. A three-layered transportation corridor was made possible by the construction of this viaduct.

In the first layer, there is an existing highway; in the second layer, there is a flyover highway; and in the third layer, there is the Nagpur metro rail.

The metro was constructed 20 meters from the ground, whereas the flyover highway was nine meters above the ground.

On the Ganeshkhind road, the Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA) has already begun construction on yet another integrated double-decker flyover. 

Rahul Mahiwal, the PMRDA’s metropolitan commissioner, explained that PMRDA made a move to ease traffic congestion on Ganeshkhind Road.

The PMRDA will construct the metro rail-topped double-decker flyover. It will connect three roads through a flyover with the Ganeshkhind road. In addition, the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) will construct four underpasses.

PMRDA has already obtained the necessary permits for the construction, and as per expectations, it will finish the construction by November 2024. Importantly, Baner, Pashan, and Aundh are connected to the city by the Ganeshkhind road. 

The road connects Pune to the Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) and the Bengaluru-Mumbai bypass. Because the construction could cause issues for commuters, the company has also proposed vehicle traffic divisions.
