KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 25 ― The Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) will rename eight roads with the names of Malay rulers who had been coronated as Yang di-Pertuan Agong, according to a statement recently.

The renaming process will start today with the installation of new road signs by DBKL.

The new names are as follows:

Jalan Duta to Jalan Tunku Abdul Halim

Jalan Khidmat Usaha to Jalan Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah

The Jalan Ipoh (between Jalan Segambut and Jalan Pahang intersections) to Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah

Persiaran Duta to Persiaran Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin

Jalan Khidmat Setia and Jalan Ibadah to Jalan Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin

Lebuhraya Mahameru to Lebuhraya Sultan Iskandar

Persiaran Mahameru to Persiaran Tuanku Ja’afar

Jalan Semarak to Jalan Sultan Yahya Petra

This is the first renaming of major roads in the capital since DBKL came under fire in 2008 for renaming Jalan Alor, a famous 35-year old tourist spot for hawker foods, to Jalan Kejora.
