Abstract: The gap between urban and rural areas is one of the key factors that may affect justice, equity, harmony and stability of the society. This is especially true in a developing country like China. Urban-rural coordination will help narrow the gap between city and countryside; more importantly, infrastructure is viewed as a crucial element in bridging the gap and facilitating a coordinated development. Based on the previously established evaluation index system and evaluation model for infrastructure contribution to urban-rural coordination, this paper makes an empirical study using the data from projects of Chongqing Urban-Rural Infrastructure Coordination Demonstration Program. The results of the study indicate that the contribution of infrastructures to urban-rural coordination increases with the growing equity of investment, and infrastructure plays a significant role in closing the urban-rural gap and gradually achieving the urban-rural coordination. Therefore, conclusion is made that the infrastructure investment between town and country should be balanced in a manner that is "equity-oriented and efficiency-emphasized" in order to attain the strategic goal of urban-rural coordination and promote social justice.
