The state highways and major district roads constitute another network of 8,031 kms.
Chhattisgarh has one of the lowest densities of National Highway in Central and South India (12.1 km/100,000 population) which is similar to the North Eastern state of Assam.
The air infrastructure in Chhattisgarh is small compared to other states.Swami Vivekananda Airport
in Raipur is its sole airport with scheduled commercial air services. A massive reduction in sales tax on aviation turbine fuel (ATF) from 25 to 4% in Chhattisgarh in 2003 has contributed to a sharp rise in passenger flow. The passenger flow has increased by 58% between 2011 and November 2012.
The State Government has signed a MOU
with the Airports Authority of India (AAI)
in July 2013 to develop Raigarh Airport, Jagadalpur, Ambikapur for domestic flights.Under UDAN regional connectivity plan Jagdalpur airport was briefly connected to Raipur by Air Odisha. Chhattisgarh which is larger than Bengal, Tamil Nadu or country like North Korea lacks civilian airports and does not have major state level civil aviation policy.
The state has the highest freight loading in the country and one-sixth of Indian Railway's revenue comes from Chhattisgarh. The length of rail network in the state is 1,108 km, while a third track has been commissioned between Durg and Raigarh.Construction of some new railway lines is under way.[when?]. These include Dalli-Rajhara–Jagdalpur rail line, Pendra Road-Gevra Road Rail Line rail line, Raigarh-Mand Colliery to Bhupdeopur rail line and Barwadih-Chirmiri rail line.Freight/goods trains provide services mostly to coal and iron ore industries in east-west corridor (Mumbai-Howrah route). There is lack of passenger services to north and south of Chhattisgarh. Current train stations are mostly over crowded and not maintained well for passengers.
It is quite easy to rent cars, most of them are rented along with drivers. These car rentals can be easily found online, or physically at airports, railway stations, bus stands and at popular tourist destinations.
