Eastern Metropolitan Bypass which is simply known as E.M. Bypass is a major road on the east side of Kolkata that connects Bidhannagar on the northeast to southern parts of Kolkata.
Design of E M Byepass
Eastern Metropolitan Bypass was designed like a bypass or beltway on the eastern side of Kolkata to lessen the perennial traffic congestion on the entire stretch of Gariahat Road. Subsequent to the construction of this road, several connectors have been built to connect Gariahat Road to the Eastern Metropolitan Bypass to deviate traffic away from the Gariahat Road. This, along with moving significant parts of public and private offices to Bidhannagar is deemed necessary to maintain the future growth of Kolkata
