Swedish: Babordsgången

I would like to translate name of street Babordsgången (in Ystad town) but I am having difficulty finding out what it means in Swedish. (I thought it could be similar case as e.g. German Rosenstasse, i.e. Rosen = rose, strasse = street, thus Rose Street).

    babord = port (side), i.e. the lefthand side on a ship when facing in the direction of the ship's movement
    gång = narrow road, typically for pedestrians

    So, Portside Road/Lane, perhaps?
