India Creates A Guinness World Record

The National Highways Authority of India sets a “Guinness World Record” by laying and constructing a continuous 75km highway in just 5 days. NHAI created the outstanding Guinness World Record by constructing bituminous concrete on the section of NH-53 between Amravati and Akola. This section from Amravati to Akola is also an important east-west corridor. They completed the project for this newly built NH 35 highway in just 105 hours and 33 minutes.

The Union Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari announced the brilliant news and success of NHAI and also congratulated everyone associated with this 75km long highway construction. He shared the news on his official Twitter account and spread the word about the finish line around the world.

 

Also, he shared that this single-lane continuous bituminous concrete road is actually equivalent to a 2-Lane Paved shoulder road of 37.5 Km each.

Gadkari also tweeted that the entire project took a record 105 hours and 33 minutes to build the bituminous concrete in a single lane.

This section is a big push to connect big cities like Kolkata, Raipur, Nagpur, Akola, Dhule and even Surat.
