ROAD REMAINS - JALAN ALOR

It was finally decided that Jalan Alor in Kuala Lumpur will remain. It was reported that the DBKL had intended to change it to Jalan Kejora with its rebranding exercise.

The Mayor of Kuala Lumpur Dato' Ab Hakim Borhan confirmed that the name will remain Jalan Alor to reporters this morning following a meeting with the Federal Territory - Kuala Lumpur road-naming committee.

The road has been known as Jalan Alor for the past 35 years and is well renowned globally for its street food.

Dato' Ab Hakim told that the reversal of the Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) decision was as a result of the public outcry against the name-change.
