The Belghoria expressway, built by the National Highway Authority of India has been operational since 2008. It is a major arterial road in the north of Kolkata, the capital of west Bengal and links the northern suburbs of Kolkata to the city.

The 8 kilometer long, four- lane tolled expressway connects Dankuni to Jessore Road which is also part of the National Highway 34.

Dankuni is in the north of Kolkata and an industrial township. Many companies such as Mother Dairy, the Food Corporation of India and Coca Cola have established factories here. The town stands at the important junction of two main highways connecting the state- NH 2 and NH 6. Both these are important and busy highways as NH2 connects West Bengal to Delhi running through the states of UP, Bihar and Jharkhand. NH 6 connects Gujarat to West Bengal.

Belghoria, another northern suburb is also now a major business and residential hub. Dakshineshwar an important town of the North 24 Paraganas district of West Bengal is also connected across the across the river Hoogly through the Nivedita Setu. All these northern suburbs are very thickly populated industrial areas with many jute, cotton and chemical factories.

The Belghoria expressway starts at the junction of NH2 and NH6 at Dankuni and ends at NH34. NH 34 connects Dum Dum in North Kolkata to Dalkhola and is an important connection for 24 Paraganas, towns in West Bengal, the north east such as Siliguiri and Guwahati, and Patna in Bihar. Dum Dum is about 10 kilometers from central Kolkata.

The Netaji Subhash Chandra International Airport, earlier called Dum Dum Airport is on this route. The Belghoria expressway has now has reduced the travelling time to the airport and to the important link road, the NH 34, to less than half an hour from the northern suburbs, especially from Dakshineshwar, which is across the river Hoogly.
