National Highway 223 (NH 223), otherwise known as the Great Andaman Trunk Road, connects Port Blair and Diglipur in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. It covers a distance of 360 km (220 mi).[1]

Populated towns en route Kadamtala, Billiground, Rangat and Mayabunder.

Ordered closure[edit]

Due to human safaris for visiting the Jarawa people occurring on the road, the Indian supreme court ordered the road to be closed, however the Andaman administration is defying this order by keeping it open but is looking for an alternative route by boat.[2]
