Any suggestion regarding this route? Road condition of NH34?
Traveled kolkata-siliguri in the 1st week of march.
in my opinion, Burdwan to Morgram via Futisanko is better than via bolpur-rampurhat.
Reason being, lesser chance of getting stuck in truck traffic. As far as road condition is concern, from burdwan upto Kuli is good barring few places. Kuli to Morgram i havn't traveled personally, but heard it's manageable. Road near ballalpur bridge is in bad shape.
Road expansion work is going on at Kaliachak, so be prepared to drive on wrong side near kaliachak, otherwise you will remain stuck in long truck queue. Once you are able to reach kaliachak crossing, avail mothabari road to bypass the jam.
Next bottleneck is Dalkhola. There are number of bypasses for Dalkhola LC. I availed College more-nichitpur one, which is is good shape barring some 100 mtrs in between.
From Morgram to Dalkhola road condition deteriorates near the towns rest of the part is very good.
