Nagpur Metro Enters Guinness Book of World Records for World’s Longest Double-decker Viaduct

Nagpur Metro in Maharashtra has entered the Guinness Book of World Record for making the longest double decker viaduct metro with a length of 3.14 km on Wardha Road.

Brijesh Dixit, MD, Maha Metro, received the certificate for the achievement from Rishi Nath, judge and arbiter of Guinness World Records, at an event at Metro Bhawan here on Tuesday.

The Double Decker Viaduct has already been certified as the longest structure in Asia and India by Asia Book of Records and India Book of Records respectively.

Speaking on the occasion, Dixit said that executing the project on Wardha Road was a big challenge. It is part of a three-tier structure, with the metro rail above, the highway flyover in the middle and the existing road at ground level.

According to an official release, the double decker viaduct measuring 3.14 km is the longest such structure in any metro rail system in the world and has three stations.

The Maha Metro entered the Asia and India Book of Records not only for the longest double-decker viaduct, but also for the maximum number of metro stations built on a double-decker viaduct.
