Tripura Road Map The state of Tripura lies in the Northeast region of India and is one of the Seven Sister States. Tripura is enclosed by Bangladesh on the north, south, and west that leaves the east side which is connected to the Indian states of Mizoram and Assam.

Tripura is located in a geographically disadvantageous location as only one major highway connects it with the rest of India i.e. the National Highway 44 (NH-44), this holds back the economic growth of the state. The national highway begins at Sabroom in south Tripura, heads north to Agartala - the capital city, and then moves east to Manu and then turns northeast to enter the state of Assam. The National Highway 44 is frequently referred as the lifeline of Tripura.

The highway is a single lane road and the maintenance is of poor quality. Landslides, rains or other disruptions often cut off the state from its neighbours. As a hilly state, it is typically dependent on roads for transportation. The overall length of roads in Tripura is 16,931 km. As of 2010, the national highways make up of 448 km and the state highways consist of 689 km.

However, recent development activities in the region have transformed the capital city Agartala into a busy town. Opening of interstate and cross border trade routes have brought in huge funds to improve the road connectivity in the state. Roads are being improved to good quality and connectivity time has improved too. The state has put up two bus terminuses at Radhanagar and Chandrapur in the city to avoid overcrowding moreover resuming city bus service after 22 years.

About a decade ago, people were afraid to travel around freely on the roads. However things are changing fast with better road infrastructure and better employment opportunities. The capital city was the fourth city in India where CNG was introduced. Several vehicles in Agartala run on CNG including the state buses and private vehicles.
