Routes in modern cities create the city’s main structure and can contribute to the development of the city. Due to the narrowing of the boundary between city’s texture and margin, routes have been converted to a stimulant for city’s development. In suburbs depend on the location and time circumstances, these routes have become the main elements for the cities that follow landscape purposes.
The main issue in this research is to develop successful evaluation criteria in communication routes in urban development. Different cities have various features and personality, so their motives in development are different with each other. Studies in Kerman, as a city, whose the development is correlated to yesterday communication routes, propound the question that is Haft-Bagh route has any proper planning with regard to evaluation criteria?
The position of this route in urban development and its prosperity needs different assessment. To this purpose, data has been gathered from site visiting, searching in the library and then, matching with urban landscape criteria, sustainable development and comparing with Sadra route in Shiraz. Results of various studies illustrate that this route ignores the sustainable urban development and landscape criteria, so routes will not be a proper factor for Kerman to develop based on them. Moreover, the generalization of these criteria is inappropriate in the absence of attention to the characteristics of the context and the city, therefore urban development criteria should be shaped based on city’s personality.
