Double-decker train:

The double-decker viaduct of 3.14 km on Wardha Road is consisting three metro stations named Chhatrapati Nagar, Jai Prakash Nagar and Ujjwal Nagar.

These stations are required special planning to station specific to meet the functional requirements of the metro duly incorporating site specific constraints and double-decker viaduct requirements.

Challenges faced over construction:

The challenge was faced about the engineering thought process, concept, design and execution of metro stations.

Initially, the alignment of the highway flyover and metro rail had been planned on same existing highway on Wardha Road as the independent piers at alternating locations proposed on the median.

But it was later reviewed and settled to integrate Highway Flyover and Metro Rail to form a double-decker viaduct.

Double decker viaduct carries highway flyover at the first level and Metro Rail at second level inducing it a three-tier transportation system with the existing highway at ground level.

Due to existence of the transportation infrastructure it helped in avoiding additional land acquisition thus saving land cost and reducing construction time and project cost.
