Growth corridors master plan
The Concept plan for the Amaravati Capital city proposes 3 important axes which serve as potential corridors within the city.
1. Civic axis
The Concept plan proposes an important North-South cardinal axis housing the states civic core with administrative functions like the state assembly, government offices, etc. The scenic Kondapalli and Neerkunda hills form the anchors to this axis. These hills will form scenic backdrops at either end of the axis.
2. Recreation axis
A north - eastern axis is planned along the existing the Kondaveeti Vagu river anchored by the historic Kanak Durga temple and Neerukunda hill. This axis will be developed as the city’s recreational corridor housing a number of parks and open spaces with no development edge along either banks of the river. The recreation axis will also bring in positive flow of energy as highlighted in the vastu principles.
3. Waterfront axis
The Concept plan also proposes an axis along the river front lying between the civic and recreational axis. This axis shall house the city’s downtown area with a vibrant waterfront commercial district that will create a distinctive skyline for the Amaravati city.
Determining development nodes
The Concept plan proposes 3 development nodes as the anchor of the 3 axes. These include:
4. Government node
Situated close to the waterfront in the north, this node in envisioned to be the vibrant commercial and civic heart of the city housing the state’s new administrative core and city’s central business district.
5. University node
The university node has been identified close to the Neerukunda hill located more centrally for easy connectivity and ample open spaces in its vicinity.
6. Recreation node
The recreation node is planned in the north-east at close proximity to the famous Undavalli caves housing a sports hub and a number of cultural activities.
7. Township Planning
The concept proposes residential developments to be clusters into townships. Each township will be planned in accordance to the township model discussed in the following sections.
8. Industrial Planning
The concept plan carefully integrates industrial clusters within the city along the peripheral national highways. These clusters will be well connected to the residential areas via multiple modes of public transport.
