New Chandigarh, originally founded as Harrington, is a Governor-ranked city founded and owned by Saltedline. Located in southwestern Epsilon near M43 station on the MRT Mesa Line, New Chandigarh is famous for its high-density urban planning, grid-based road network, and its brutalist-style Government Complex.



Overpass surrounding M43 station before New Chandigarh was developed

New Chandigarh was founded on August 19, 2021. Seeking for the MRT station with a premier-ranked city nearby, Saltedline claimed the land around M43 with the help of Missa_Solemnis. The city was initially named Harrington, after American political activist Michael Harrington. After acquiring the station, a highway overpass around the station built by an unknown inactive player was demolished immediately. However, almost nothing was built near the station besides an underground enterance for the MRT Station and an unfinished brick plaza before June 2022.

After the long break, Saltedline decided to finally start develop the city at June 20, 2022. The city was registered with the new name "New Chandigarh", since Harrington was already taken by an inactive town. Inspired by the city plan of Chandigarh, India by architect Le Corbusier, superblock-based urban planning in southern Seoul, and other grid-based highly developed cities in the MRT Server like Elecna Bay and Kolpino City, New Chandigarh adopted a 100 block x 75 block or 125 block x 75 block grid for its road network. Six blocks were initially built, mostly by hand. Spegit007 was named as the deputy mayor after she helped Saltedline get the citizen rank.

New Chandigarh Mall and the Intercity Bus Station were quickly filled up with franchises and bus routes by sending requests aggressively to other server members online using private chat.
