Special Issue Description

The Industrial Corridor Development Policy has several clearly stated objectives, such as enhancing infrastructure, promoting exports, creating jobs, and connecting rapidly developing regions to comparatively less developed regions. The corridor policy, which largely focuses on constructing manufacturing and capital equipment, is an effort by the Indian national government to formally link economic and industrial development to urbanization. Everything was connected invisibly by the plethora of transportation and communication routes, including telephones, railroads, rivers, airways, and highways and roads. Urban corridors are a pattern of urban systems that evolved along transportation corridors, allowing for the movement of people and products between the major urban hubs, resulting in the densification of city cores and the expansion of urban peripheral areas. The idea of developing corridors is not new, especially in developed areas. Following the industrial revolution, a brand-new phenomenon known as conurbation emerged in which cities expanded in a straight line. Modern urban corridors and this idea are very similar, however contemporary urban corridors operate on a much wider spatial scale. These corridors, which connect two or more metropolitan centers via passenger and freight traffic, are made up of a range of infrastructure, including highways, railways, bus lanes, cycling tracks, river canals, and water and air connections.
