Batu Lanchang Lane is one of the main roads in the Batu Lanchang area of George Town, Penang. Similar to nearby Green Lane, it is only a "lane" by name, as over time, the lane has grown to become a major road. Batu Lanchang Lane connects the Air Itam Main Road to the north with Green Lane to the south. The Hamilton Road Flyover connect it with Hamilton Road.

Batu Lanchang Lane passes through land that was once the plantation of Robert Ibbetson, who served as Governor of the Straits Settlement from 1832 to 1834. Today his name remains at Ibbetson Road, a rather obscure minor road tucked away behind Grove Road.

Batu Lanchang Lane is characterised by the number of schools along it. Among them include Sekolah Kebangsaan Batu Lanchang, Georgetown Secondary School and the Batu Lanchang Vocational Secondary School. Across the road from these schools are the Batu Lanchang Hokkien Cemetery and Batu Lanchang Hindu Cemetery. Another prominent landmark along the road is the senior citizen home of the Little Sisters of the Poor.

Much of the traffic of Batu Lanchang Lane came about due to the founding of the Farlim township. Once a quiet country lane, Batu Lanchang Lane now sees daily congestion, particularly at the Hamilton Road interchange, especially during rush hours. It is however one of the few major roads in George Town not to be served by any bus routes.

Getting there

Batu Lanchang Lane is one of the few main roads in George Town not served by bus. So you will need your own transport to get there.
