Remember the 3.41 km double decker viaduct recently announced by the Nagpur Metro Rail Corp Ltd. to be built on Wardha Road in collaboration with the National Highways Authority of India? Well, if you need a quick refresher then check out: Nagpur Metro Finalizes Design for a Double Decker Viaduct on Wardha Road for more details and an image of an existing double viaduct at Jaipur. If you’re ready to proceed, then here’s a cool little model of it unveiled by the MD of the NMRCL, Mr. Brijesh Dixit.
This double decker viaduct will be built between Ajni square to the Pride Hotel (Airport T-point).
As a reminder, work on the stretch just south of where this double viaduct will be built is underway. Nagarjuna Constructions was handed over the contract to construct the initial 4.5 km section from Khapri to the Airport as part of the 19.66 km north-south line. The contract to Nagarjuna includes one big and two small bridges, a station at the airport and a depot at Khapri. The line here will run at-grade (ground-level).
