Lane Meanings

The term lane can be used in different ways. Currently the most common use refers to the bands or strips that divide a road longitudinally. Each of these lanes allows the transit of a row of cars.

The sum of the lanes, which may be marked on the asphalt, constitutes the carriageway of the street, avenue or highway in question. For example: “The lane on the left is destined for vehicles traveling at a higher speed”, “The fall of a tree forced to cut two lanes of the highway”, “Be careful that there are many potholes in this lane”.

On some roads there are special lanes for bicycles. Known as a cycle lane, bike path or cycle lane, this type of lane encourages the use of bicycles and provides greater safety for cyclists.

The importance of the bike lane is becoming increasingly apparent in some countries, although it has not yet received the attention it deserves globally. If all large cities promote the use of bicycles instead of motorized vehicles, environmental pollution and the number of car accidents would decrease considerably, in addition to the health of those who choose this form of exercise would increase.

There are countries where the concept of rail is used to refer to the steel or iron bars that are arranged in parallel to form the track where the trains move. In other nations, the rail is known as a rail or rail.

These rails allow the movement of the wheels of trams and trains. Not only do they support the formations, but they also conduct electrical current and guide the course.

A rail, on the other hand, is a groove, groove, or channel that allows an item to slide in a certain direction. Many windows and doors are opened and closed by moving them in a lane.

As a proper name, we find this term in Santiago de Carril, one of the most important parishes in Villagarcía de Rosa, a municipality in the province of Pontevedra, northwest of Spain. The founding of Carril took place around the year 1500, initially as a town, and a decade later it already had its own port.

It is necessary to point out that the port of Carril became one of the most important in Galicia in the middle of the 18th century. At the beginning of the 1800, they authorized it to embark and disembark with the American continent. It was a town of great importance, with its nautical school and its hospital.

Carril had a strong link with Santiago de Compostela, whose bourgeoisie created a second-class customs office in 1801. Towards the middle of the 19th century, the population of Carril exceeded two thousand one hundred residents, who were distributed in about two hundred and fifty houses that were on the Island of Cortegada, in the town and in two other neighborhoods that also belonged to its territory.

On the other hand, there is the magazine called CARRIL, a publication of railway interest published by the Association of Friends of the Railway, in Barcelona. It is carried out in a completely altruistic way by a group of collaborators who cover different specialties related to the technical aspects, history and news of this means of transport.

The predecessor of this magazine was the internal communication bulletin that was published until 1977, the year in which its first period began, which lasted until 1982. It was then that its horizons were broadened and it managed to reach fans of the world of the railroad, as well as anyone to whom person aroused curiosity. From 1982 to the present, two issues are usually published per year.
