VIP Road, (officially Kazi Nazrul Islam Sarani), is a major thoroughfare connecting the city of Kolkata with the Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport. Located in the North-Eastern outskirts of the city, it was built in 1962 to provide speedy connection with the city and its sole airport. In recent times, it has been stuck with the problem of traffic jams especially in the crossings of Kestopur & Baguiati. VIP Road falls under the administration of South Dum Dum & Rajarhat-Gopalpur Municipalities. A flyover connecting VIP Road with EM Bypass has been opened in 2011, reducing traffic bottlenecks at Ultadanga crossing. However, a flank of the flyover collapsed onto Keshtopur Canal flowing beneath in March 2013.
A number of budget hotels are located along the northern stretch of VIP Road
VIP Road was renamed after the great revolutionary poet Kazi Nazrul Islam.

Another bypass route (Major Arterial Road) to the airport via Rajarhat has been created, which connects Haldirams on VIP Road to Chingrighata on EM Bypass, passing through Rajarhat.
