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.
