02.03 GREEN CORRIDORS

The network of the Green Corridors is to become an area which provides conditions favorable for biodiversity to flourish and it is to be interwoven in the built fabric of the Residential Zone. It will also act as a backbone for movement in terms of non-motorized movement,withtheintroductionofanefficientcyclepathnetwork and walking paths within the corridor. As for the goals set by the Master Plan (Perspective: 2025) and Master Plan 2004 - Directions for Growth the Green Corridors are to ensure the presence of the green space within the city area (the planned 50% of green area in town’s proportion). The greenery penetratingthetownbuiltfabricpresentsanopportunitytoprovide a base for the new movement network. Hence, the Green Corridor network was expanded and refined, building up on the layout indicated by the diagrams of the Master Plan 2004 - Directions for Growth and City Center Study (2007) (Fig.6). This was done in order to provide the most convenient, complete and comprehensive shaded routes for people moving through the sectors. Moreover, the network was further adopted to include in its layout the environmentally sensitive areas and, wherever possible, respond to the surface water collection swells proposed in Auroville City Area Surface, Water Sourcing Study (2013).
