Research on urban expansion, sprawl, and compact city concepts to identify the scope of improvement in master and regional plans has been conducted widely. The changes in the networks of transportation systems have huge impacts on land use. Studies are available which explain the relationship between transportation and land use. But there is a need to understand how these systems’ alterations affect the urban form and identify the crucial factors of street connectivity and transport networks contributing to urban and regional growth. Thus, further research is needed to find the influence of the connectivity of transport networks on the urban forms. This paper attempts to review the literature on sprawl indices focusing on transportation factors, street-network sprawl, and linkages of urban form and land use. This study showcases the possibilities of research in street-network sprawl and the relationship between street connectivity and urban form. These research outcomes can bring compelling policy implications in the transport planning of networks.
