Jessore Road is an important road connecting Dum Dum in Kolkata to Jessore in Bangladesh. While the Dum Dum–Barasat sector is now part of NH 34, the Barasat–Petrapole sector is now part of NH 35. The road acts as a major link between Kolkata with the northern suburbs, especially Barasat and Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport. The road meets commuter rail links at the Jessore Road Suburban Railway Station and at Barasat Junction. Currently metro stations on this road include Shyambazar and Belgachia.
