Jalan Sultan Ismail Two Way from 30 April

Jalan Sultan Ismail has been made a two-way road from 30 April 2024. The move is expected to reduce traffic congestion around the Bukit Bintang area.

Kuala Lumpur Deputy Chief of Police, Datuk Azry Akmar Ayob said the change started from Jalan Raja Chulan to Simpang Bukit Bintang. He said that a total of 20 members of the Kuala Lumpur Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department (JSPT) will be stationed along the route to help smooth the flow of traffic.

“This route change has been implemented since last Wednesday (April 30) to avoid traffic congestion in the center of the capital.

“The deployment of 20 traffic officers on this route is to smooth traffic because many users are still unaware of the change,” he said.

Commenting further, Azry said the route will be used as a one-way road during peak hours from 6 am to 9 am which will be controlled by his side. The one-way route will start from Jalan Kampung Pandan towards Jalan Sultan Ismail and the route will become a two-way road after 9am.

According to him, to avoid confusion, he will place JSTP members along the route involved.

“We still haven’t been able to (see the results) completely and monitoring is still being done by traffic officers stationed around Bukit Bintang and Jalan Sultan Ismail.

“Officers will monitor the smooth passage of vehicles passing here, besides trying to give road users more understanding.

“We hope this implementation can reduce the rate of traffic congestion in Bukit Bintang,” he said.

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
