On a trip from Noida to Patna today. 1130 hrs. Between Kanpur and Fatehpur, one side of NH 19 closed for a small stretch.

Started from Noida at 0400 hrs today. Took YE and then Agra Lucknow Expressway. Left it near Bilhaur at around 0840. But from here to exit of Kanpur bypass, it consumed time up to 1050 hrs. This was 80 kms travel, with one pp break and one fuel filling stop. Time wasted in travelling this stretch as road from Bilhaur to Kanpur narrow with heavy traffic.

30 kms from Fatehpur, all kinds of traffic from two wheelers to cycle, tractors, traffic from front. NH2 has deteriorated since we last travelled in 2013.

Another toll after Fatehpur, full 20 minutes wasted. A single gate, and same indifferent toll collectors. Would have to find another road to travel to Patna from Noida, and travel only in emergency.

While coming straight from YE, this is the left turn ahead on the Agra Lucknow Expressway. This is the photo taken in the morning. I am used to travelling on the Jaipur Abu Road Radhanpur Gandhidham route since I stayed in Gujarat Gandhidham for three years before returning to Noida this year. NH19 is no match for the above road. High density population along the route is one of the reasons for the bad quality of road travel.

Allahabad bypass so far is ok. Toll gate was not clogged. Traffic is less. Culvert portion has been repaired.

Went upto Sasaram on NH19, then turned left to reach Ara via Bikramganj. Road is well carpeted though single lane one side. Koelwar bridge crossed with some anxious moments.

Why not take the Lucknow - Gorakhpur - Muzaffarpur - Patna route? It is all 4 lane, with only hiccup between Muz and Patna and that too the Gandhi setu. It is better road than the original NH-2 [GT Road]

Now Gandhi Setu is also not a hiccup. All you need to do is take the Sonepur-Digha J P Setu which is open only for small cars, no commercial vehicles or buses. I can update after 2nd July once I travel on it. I just did a Muzaffarpur-Lucknow-Gurgaon trip spread over 2 days, total time taken was 15 hours driving sedately with cruise set at 100kmph. There's a small patch around Gopalganj which is still under construction. Otherwise it's a breeze.
