NHAI sets world record for completing 75 km stretch in 105 hrs

Minister of Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari announced setting a Guinness World Record for the 75 km stretch of the Amravati-Akola highway in Maharashtra, laid in just 105 hours and 33 minutes.

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has created a Guinness World Record for the longest continuously laid bituminous lane of 75 km in 105 hours and 33 minutes on the National Highway (NH) between Amravati and Akola districts in Maharashtra.

Gadkari said the project had been implemented by 720 workers, including a team of independent consultants who worked day and night.

The overall length of the 75 km of single-lane continuous bituminous concrete road is equal to 37.5 km of two-lane paved shoulder road.

He added that the work was started on 3 June 2022 and completed on 7 June 2022. Gadkari said that the previous Guinness World Record was achieved for the longest continuously laid bituminous of 25.275 km of road in Doha, Qatar, in February 2019, and that work was completed in just ten days.

The Amravati-Akola section is part of NH-53, which is a crucial east-east corridor, connecting major cities like Kolkata, Raipur, Nagpur and Surat.

After completion, this road stretch will play a key role in easing the movement of traffic and freight on this route.

Gadkari congratulated all the engineers, contractors, consultants, and workers from NHAI and Raj Path Infracon Private Limited for the efficient implementation of the project, leading to the successful completion of this world record.
