Delhi Metro Enters in Limca World Records

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has entered the Limca Book of World Records for erecting 200 U-shaped girders.

DMRC successfully executed the task of erecting 200 U-shaped girders on the Noida – Greater Noida corridor in May 2016. This is the maximum number of U-shaped girders ever launched on any metro corridor in India within a month.

Girders bear the load of the metro tracks and help speed up construction work.

The 30-km-long corridor will be completely elevated and will have 21 stations.

All stations will be equipped with platform screen doors, rainwater harvesting facilities and solar panels.
