Attention Kuala Lumpur motorists, a major traffic flow change has been implemented! Jalan Sultan Ismail, a central artery in the bustling Bukit Bintang district, is now a two-way road between the junctions of Jalan Raja Chulan (think Wisma Genting and the former Hotel Istana) and Jalan Bukit Bintang (the iconic Lot 10 crossing). This replaces the previous one-way system.

Implemented by Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) in early May 2024, this switch aims to improve traffic flow and potentially ease congestion, especially during peak hours.

What You Need to Know:

  • The two-way stretch applies specifically to Jalan Sultan Ismail between points J158 and J159.
