Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has entered the national Limca Book of Records for erecting maximum number of girders in a month on a single Metro line project in the country.
DMRC created this record on the under-construction 29.7-km long Noida-Greater Noida Metro line.
DMRC has set a target of launching 140 girders every month. However, it created a new record by erecting 218 U-girders in October last year.
"We broke our own record in October last year when we erected 218 U-girders which converts to approximately 3 kms of twin Metro elevated viaduct in one month. We have registered it for the record as well," to DMRC's managing director, Dr Mangu Singh told Times of India.
The work on Noida-Greater Noida Metro is moving speedily. Six cranes and six trailers have been deployed for erecting the U-girders on this corridor.
"The Noida-Greater Noida Metro is moving at a super-fast pace. The Aqua line is likely to be launched by the end of 2017. Ahead by three month it is all set to achieve a world record of being the first Metro line to be commissioned in a short span of two and half years.The first trial runs of the corridor will be launched from Greater Noida," Santosh Yadav, managing director of Noida Metro Rail Corporation, told TOI.
