    @Ravi- I was looking the route you did, looks like there are couple if routes after Balasore. Below is the Google Maps link I am thinking of taking, can you have a look and guide me please?

    Map- Bangalore to Samastipur (Bihar)

    Anyone has done a recent trip taking this route? Any input on current road condition would be highly appreciated :)

    Hello All

    Yes, after a long time I turned to TFI page. Was occupied with couple of projects (official trips etc) and did almost zero road trip during an year.

    Again, planning a road trip from Bangalore to Patna in October 2015 and wanted some expert advise on current road condition from Bangalore. I am planning to take; BLR-Tirupati-NH5-Vijayawada-Vizag-(1st Stay)- Vizag-Balasore-Jamshedpur-(2nd Stay)-Jamshedpur-Ranchi-Patna-(Destination).

    It would be really helpful if anyone can share recent experience on road condition on above route, especially from Balasore to Jamshedpur taking "Balasore - Baripada - Bangriposi - Rairangpur - Hata - Jamshedpur".

    Any alternate route would be worth considering provided the road condition is good. I (actually any highway driver) don't mind taking a longer drive than pathetic road :happy:

    I heard, this route is in pretty bad state, and with rain, I advise you not to take this route.
    Taking full GT route, via Kolkata by-pass - Durgapur - , should be better option. I mean this route.

    Hi Ravi- thank you so much for your advise. I heard Balasore-Kharagpur-Dankuni-Durgapur stretch is bad as well, kind of confused :confused:

    Anyone who has done a recent trip via Balasore - Baripada - Bangriposi - Rairangpur - Hata - Jamshedpur OR the route Ravi suggested? Thanks in advance.
