In its broadest sense, the word ‘lane’ refers to a narrow road, in particular in a rural area.
Urban Design Guidelines for Victoria, published by the State of Victoria (Australia) in 2016, defines a lane as: ‘A travel path for a vehicle as part of a roadway. As in 'bicycle lane', 'traffic lane', or 'bus lane'.’
It defines a laneway as: ‘A vehicular way or pedestrian access way, often narrower that a street, located to the rear or side of lots providing access to the service areas, parking and outbuildings, and it may accommodate utility easements.’
