Highlights:

• Section of NH-53 highway set new world record which was built by private contractor
• Highway between Amravati and Akola was completed in 105 hours and 33 minutes

The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) entered the Guinness Book of World Records on June 7. In less than five days, the authority set a world record by constructing a 75-kilometer continuous bituminous concrete in a single lane on NH-53.

In Maharashtra, a stretch of highway between Amravati and Akola was completed in 105 hours and 33 minutes, breaking the previous world record.

What Do The Authorities Have To Say?

According to a report, Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari tweeted about the accomplishment. He also shared a photo of the highway construction as well as the Guinness World Record certificate.

He said in a tweet, "Bringing Prosperity to India! Under the leadership of Prime Minister Shri @narendramodi Ji, @NHAI Official successfully completed a Guinness World Record (@GWR) by celebrating our nation's rich heritage with #AzadiKaAmrutMahotsav."

A New World Record is Being Set

The highway section that set the new world record was built by private contractor Rajput Infracon. The Amravati-Akola Highway was built in record time, starting at 6 a.m. on June 4 and ending on June 7.

The NH-53 highway travels through a mineral-rich region of India. Because it connects major cities such as Kolkata, Raipur, Nagpur, Akola, Dhule, and Surat, the highway is critical.

The 75-kilometer stretch of highway was built with the help of 800 employees and 700 workers. Rajput Infracon has previously set a world record by building a road between Satara and Sangli in 24 hours.

Previous world record holder

On February 27, 2019, the Public Works Authority- ASHGHAL of Qatar held the previous world record, which was broken by Rajput Infracon. They built a road as part of the Al-Khor Expressway, and it took them ten days to complete.
