In the 1960s, Green Lane evolved from a farming community into several housing estates. Various developers changed the landscape from sleepy farming areas such as Guan Joo Seng and Island and Peninsular Berhad into a new suburb. A new landmark the Holy Spirit Cathedral was established together with the Guan Joo Seng Estate - now known as Taman Besi. Green Lane grew from a little lane to a full road.

With the introduction of the industrial estate at Bayan Lepas, Green Lane became the trunk road connecting Georgetown with the south i.e. Gelugor and Bayan Lepas. Green Lane grew from a single lane to a triple lane road today. It is also one of the busiest roads in Penang.

With the opening of the State Mosque at the northern end of Green Lane, the road was renamed Jalan Mesjid Negeri (State Mosque Road). The road passes through a few major housing estates e.g. Taman Besi, Island Glades and Island Park.

Today, Green Lane refers to the environs surrounding Jalan Masjid Negeri. Important landmarks apart from the aforesaid are the McDonalds drive-in, Penang Free School, Convent Green Lane, Chung Hwa Confucian High School,...
