The concept of corridor development (in its several guises) embraces three main ideas: (a) the planned and complementary functional relationship between one or a number of modes of transport and the surrounding development, (b) the desire to obtain optimum economic rent from land within the immediate influence of transport routes involving, where desirable, the multiple use of transport lands, and (c) an embracing management framework for conceiving, implementing and monitoring the effects of corridor developments. The essential elements in jointly developing transport routes with adjoining land uses are securing land early, buying more than is immediately required, and managing it soundly before obsolescent property is demolished and re-developed, and replacing the acquired property with a diversity of new complementary uses. /Author/TRRL/
