Roorkee finds its importance by being the host of many prominent institutions and

organizations. The city has contributed to the national development by producing the finest quality engineers from the renowned University of Roorkee, now called the Indian

Institute of Technology, Roorkee. It is also the home of various government research

institutes as Central Building Research Institute (CBRI), Irrigation Research Institute (IRI) and

the National Institute of Hydrology (NIH). It also has an army base of Bengal Engineering

Group & Centre (BEG&C). The town is also famous for the big Ganges canal, the brainchild of Sir Proby Thomas

Cautley that flows on a bridge crossing a seasonal river, Solani which was built by the

British in 1854 and augmented recently. The aqueduct to carry the canal is half a

kilometer long and as a result, the canal flows at a height of 25 metres over the original

river. Roorkee is also the place where the first locomotive engine named Mary Lind, especially shipped from England moved on rails in India. Mary Lind ran in year 1846, well before the first passenger train from Bombay to Thane.

ANALYSIS AND FINDINGS

1.Growth pattern does not follow

any of the classical theories in all

respects though there are some

similarities in respect of few

zones/sectors.

2.Developments have mostly taken place along main transport

routes and have taken place shape

of ribbon development in many places.

3.Because of absence of

4.Villages on fringes from a kind of

commuter zone or residential

suburbs.

5.Civil lines area, though small in size has assumed

character high class residential development due to influence of IIT and Cantonment.

6.Various institutions on eastern side and Solani river apparently have acted as barrier to physical shape of the town in that direction.

7.Large proportion of areas showing high class

residential development helps in establishing

educated elitist character of the town.

8.Latest trend of isolated development along Delhi road and to lesser extend to Haridwar road appears

to be due to natural barrier to Solani river.

9.Pollution is comparatively less as compared to other towns.

10.Generally growth on the periphery of the town is

uncontrolled.

11.Conversion of agriculture land along main road

into residential and commercial use

12.Development has taken place on almost all sides particularly along major axes of the town.
