Not in very good shape, specially after the monsoon. You have to drive cautiously after Durgapur. The road was repaired and was in good shape earlier. Unfortunately just after few spells of rain it has deteriorated badly.

In case you wish to go by the Tarakeswar route, specially in this Bengali month of "Sravan", please remember that the authorities are keeping this route closed for motor vehicles on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays. This is to cope with the heavy rush of pilgrims at Tarakeswar temple, who like to carry water with them to pour on the idol of Lord Shiva at the temple of Tarakeswar.
