Eco-spatial structure optimization of urban agglomeration will promote economic and social environmental sustainable development in the urban agglomeration region. Based on an exhaustive analysis of the spatial interaction, mutualism, co-evolutionary mechanism and ecological links between the eco-spatial structure and economic-social development of the urban agglomeration, this paper establishes optimized modes of corridor group network in urban agglomeration region by optimizing and reorganizing eco-spatial structure; and analyses the reasons of the eco-spatial structure disorder, evolution trends and optimized model of spatial structure in the Central Plains Urban Agglomeration Region. Finally, the authors bring forward suggestions of eco-spatial structure optimization in the Central Plains Urban Agglomeration, which are in line with local conditions, set up a perfectly efficient “plaque-corridor-matrix” urban agglomeration eco-network system, promote a reasonable division among cities of the urban agglomeration region and formation industrial cluster, and build a mechanism to guide the development of urban agglomeration, so that the urban and rural construction will change, providing more suitable environment in the urban agglomeration region for people to live.
