Eastern Metropolitan Bypass snakes its way through the eastern fringe of Kolkata
, bypassing the existing busy corridors in the city. It facilitates the smooth flow of regional traffic and provides for improved connectivity between the fast growing settlements in the south-east and the north-east parts of the city. The Rash Behari Connector and the Park Circus Connector links the bypass with the main city.
Once a foul smelling dump yard before the arrival of the E M Bypass, the region is now completely transformed and is a hub of commercial and industrial activity.
Science City, Baishnab Ghata Patuli, East Kolkata Township, Peerless Hospital, Ruby Hospital, Apollo Gleneagles Hospital, R N Tagore Hospital, Satyajit Ray Film Institute, Hiland Park residential complex and leather complex at Bantala are located along this stretch.
Hyatt Regency and the ITC Sonar Bangla Sheraton are two up market hotels situated along the E M Bypass.
