Thank You for the inputs Rahul da.

Last I heard, NH6 is not in a good shape and members from the HVK forum also suggested the same saying that NH6 is in a car breaking condition now. Ditto NH33 from Ranchi-Baharagora. Plus this route will mean driving over 650 kms and going with these conditions it will be impossible to drive it in a day.

In February I rode my Classic 500 from Ranchi-Jamshedpur-Baharagora-Baripada-Balasore-Bhubaneswar in 11 hours. The same when I did in a Tavera in the month of August, it took me 13 hours. This was because the whole NH33 is so pothole ridden that it is better to ride a motorcycle and negotiate potoles (read craters) rather than driving a car and getting stuck. Moreover now in the last month, the condition has only got worse. I seriously want to avoid NH-33 unless all other options are equally pathetic as far as road conditions are concerned.

Default Re: Ranchi to Raurkela. Best Route?

So any updates on the route? I need to travel to Rourkela from Ranchi sometime this month or early next month. Was looking for the route where the first priority would be safety. Kindly suggest the best route in terms of safety and then road surface.

Google maps suggests this: (Haven't checked MMI)

UPDATE:

The best route to reach Bhubaneswar or Puri from Ranchi/Jamshedpur is the Ranchi-Jamshedpur-Hata-Rairangpur-Bagriposi-Baripada-Balasore-Cuttack-Bhubaneswar route.

The Hata-Rairangpur-Bangriposi stretch is a charm with some nice swooping corners too, making driving so much more pleasurable. However, the Ranchi-Jamshedpur stretch is not in a really good shape. No potholes though, but the surface is not really smooth.

The Baripada-Bhubaneswar is again lovely. Just before the exit to Balasore, one enters the Golden Quadrilateral and from here to Cuttack runs a road which is smooth, fast and exciting.

Any updates or the best route between Bhubaneswar to Ranchi please. How is NH 215 and NH 75. Is it better via Chakradharpur or via Jamshedpur?

Take the Bhubaneswar - Baripada - Bangriposi - Rairangpur - Hata - Jamshedpur - Ranchi route.

This route is in much better shape and sees much less traffic than the one via Baharagora or the one via Chakradharpur.

I think below is also a good option. My Oriya neighbor confirmed that roads are good:
Ranchi-Bundu-Khunti-Kandra- Sariakela-Chaibasa-Koenjhar-Bamnipal-Cuttack-Bhubneshwar
