Nagpur: Nagpur Metro in Maharashtra has entered the Guinness Book of World Records for creating the longest double-decker viaduct metro measuring 3.14 km on Wardha Road.


Maha Metro MD Brijesh Dixit received a certificate for the achievement from judge and adjudicator of Guinness World Records Rishi Nath 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 the 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 major challenge. It is part of a three-tier structure, with the metro rail on top, a highway flyover in the middle, and the existing road at the ground level.


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

Maha Metro had earlier entered Asia and India Book of Records not just for the longest double-decker viaduct, but also for the maximum number of metro stations constructed on a double-decker viaduct, it said.
