Amaravati: The Polavaram Irrigation Project is all set for creating two more world records by completing the highest volume of concrete works. According to the AP Water Resources Department, efforts are on to take up the massive works of pouring concrete continuously for 24 hours and lay highest concrete in a single stretch. The State government wants to break the record of Dubai, where the highest volume of concrete was poured in 24 hours.

Talking to The Hans India on Saturday, Principal Secretary Shashi Bhushan Kumar said the world’s biggest concrete work will begin at 9 am on Sunday and will continue till 9 am on Monday. During this period, the department wants to complete 28,000 to 30,000 cubic metres of concrete works. Once this was achieved within 24 hours, the work of pouring concrete would continue and all-out efforts will be made to create another major world record. The concrete works will be undertaken at both Spill Channel and Spillway areas. Though, it is required to pour more than 18 lakh cubic metres of concrete to complete the Polavaram project, they planned to pour 28,000 to 30,000 of concrete in a single stretch. He said the Polavaram project is recognized as the only project where works were progressing at jet speed in the entire country, when compared with other major irrigation projects on any river.

Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu is scheduled to visit Polavaram on Monday after the breaking of the first world record. He will be there while creating the second world record, CMO officials said on Saturday. Chandrababu Naidu will also review the progress of the works on the dam site on Monday, as part of the weekly review. Recently, the Chief Minister participated in the Polavaram first radial gate erection ceremony and now he would witness another milestone in the construction of the project. It may be recalled that the AP government had recently created a world record by completing the Raft Foundation for Secretariat and Heads of the Departments buildings at Amaravati.
