National Highway 2 connects Dhanbad to Delhi, Agra, Kanpur, Allahabad, Banaras, Mughal Sarai, Asansol, Durgapur, and Kolkata. Buses operated by State Transport Corporations of Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, and West Bengal run on it. The National Highway 32 starts from Gobindpur, moves through Bokaro, reaches Bengal, passes through Purulia, returns to Jharkhand and ends in Jamshedpur.

Journey Suggestion: The road conditions in Jharkhand are not reliable. National Highway 2 is being converted into a six-lane expressway. However, for longer distances, it is always advisable to use the railways as trains give you more room to move around and therefore, you enjoy a smoother ride.

Dhanbad is the most important railway station in Jharkhand, it serves a hundred thousand passengers every day and offers train services to important cities like Delhi, Madras, Bombay, Calcutta, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Kochi, Hyderabad, Jabalpur, Gwalior, among others.
