Krishnanagar is well connected with Kolkata, the capital of the state with roads and railways. A broad gauge railway line and the NH-34 connecting Kolkata with Assam and adjoining states via North Bengal run just by the west of Krishnanagar town. The erstwhile narrow-gauge railway line linking Santipur and Nabadwip, the two places for pilgrimage of the Vaisnabas, were taken up for conversion into broad gauge. The line from Krishnagar to Santipur has already been converted and regular B.G. trains are plying, while the other is under the process of conversion. The town is also directly connected by road with Mayapur, the H.Q. of ISKCON in India.
