Narendra Modi Stadium

Sardar Patel Stadium world's largest stadium
The Narendra Modi Stadium is commonly known as the Motera Stadium which is the most premier cricket stadia of India and now going to be the world's largest stadium, which can hold up to 1.1 lakh individuals. The Stadium is located in Ahmedabad, in India, which is under construction which is rebuilt on the same ground as the original stadium.

The old/original Motera Stadium has witnessed some historic moments of Indian Cricket such as:

  • Sunil Gavaskar's 10,000th Test Run.
  • Kapil Dev's World record 432nd wicket.
  • Sachin Tendulkar scored First Double Century in 1999.
The stadium originally had a capacity of 54,000 and when the build was the largest incapacity. Then the record of largest cricket stadium was taken over by Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Australia, which has a capacity of 100,024. The Sardar Patel Stadium/ Motera Stadium is going to snatch this tag from MCG because now it will become the world's largest cricket stadium soon.

What makes it Different?

Narendra Modi Stadium started its construction in January 2018 and is expected to be completed in March 2020. It will have a capacity of around 110000, which will surpass the capacity of Melbourne Stadium. The stadium will be spread over 63 acres, which would comprise a clubhouse with over 50 rooms, 4 dressing rooms, 76 corporate boxes, and 3 practice grounds for cricketers. There will be an Olympic size swimming pool, an indoor cricket training academy, and a parking area that will accommodate 3000 four-wheelers and up to 10000 two-wheelers. The total project is worth 7 Billion rupees ($102 million). These numbers are truly insane.
This will definitely be the Largest Cricket stadium but will also be in the Top 5 from the Top 10 largest stadiums in the world.

Engineering Breakthrough:

Engineering Breakthrough
Walter P Moore is serving as the Structural Engineer and connection designer for the roof of what will be the world's largest cricket stadium. The roof was initially designed to be supported by a trichord compression ring. Walter P Moore proposed a lightweight and flexible tension/compression system which allowed the team to cut costs while simplifying connection and erection procedures. The inner and outer rings support the Teflon Coated woven fiberglass, which is stretched between them supported by spokes, which will allow for movement in time of seismic activity.
Updates:- The stadium was inaugurated with the presence of Prime Minister Modi and President  Donald Trump on the 24th of February, 2020 with over 12500 individuals in-house and more.

Great Man-Made River (GMR)

Libya's Great Man Made River: The Great Man-Made River in Libya is one of the most ambitious Civil Engineering Project in history of mankind.  In the year 1953, the Libya Government found out not only vast oil reserves but also vast quantity of fresh water locked under the strata, most of the water was trapped around 7000-30000 years ago which is divided in 4 different basins. The first basin is named Kufra basin which is neat Egypt Border which covers almost 35000 sq kilometer which is quite deep around 2000 m deep. The other basin is in Sirte Basin which cover 10000 sq kilometer, third in Murzuk Basin and the last in Jabal Fezzan Basin covering 4800 sq kilometers area.  The GMR project will be used to transfer water to North of the country to provide water for irrigation purpose for more than 6 million  people. This will be a changing point  for Libya and the Colonel Muammar Gaddafi called it the Eighth Wonder of World. The work started in 1984 of the project and estimated to be
