There’s no doubt in the fact that Chandigarh is one of the most well planned cities of the world. Going a step further and bringing Chandigarh at par with international standards, Chandigarh Administration has introduced lane system in sectors. Along with division of sectors as A, B, C, D and specific house numbers; Chandigarh will now have lanes as 1, 2, 3 in each sector. Chandigarh administration has already implemented and launched the pilot project for lane system in Sector 35. This system would soon be rolled out in entire Chandigarh sector wise, one by one.
Details of Lane Number System in Chandigarh:
As sectors are divided into 4 parts namely A, B, C and D, the planning committee has decided to introduce around 10 lanes. However, the number of lanes may vary for each sector and each part depending on the size of the sector and number of residences in each part. Chandigarh administration has decided to number the lanes in a clockwise direction staring from numeric number 1.
Your new house address will thus be something like:
House Number: 4444,
Lane Number: 4,
This will make it easy for anyone to find a given address especially if someone from outside Chandigarh is visiting the city. A person has to reach Sector 35, go to division B, find lane number 4 and hence easily locate the house number without roaming in lanes to find a number.
Lane System in Sector 35, Chandigarh
As the pilot project has already been launched in Sector 35, a total of 90 sign boards with lane numbers displayed on them have been installed within the sector. The sign boards are in blue colour with lane number written over them in white colour. The pilot project which constitutes 90 sign boards in Sector 35 has costed the Chandigarh Government an amount of Rs. 10 Lakh. The move has got appreciation from residents and welfare societies.
The project of introducing lanes will soon be implemented in other sectors of Chandigarh.
Chandigarh, the city beautiful has always been on the forefront of introducing technology and providing better facilities for its residents. Other cities might copy the model but as of now it is Chandigarh which has such a vast address system constituting house number, lane number, sector division, sector number and then even North, South, East and West Chandigarh.
