Penang's Jalan Jelutong to go back to one-way street

GEORGE TOWN: The Penang Municipal Council will turn Jalan Jelutong here into a one-way street from 9am on Thursday, making an about-turn on a 2007 decision.

The MPPP Public Relations Division said in a statement today that the purpose of the conversion into a one-way system was to ease traffic congestion and smoothen traffic flow there.

The conversion was also to reduce the traffic conflict and obstruction due to the parking of vehicles on the roadside, the statement said.

Motorists wishing to go to the Jelutong area could use the access road from Jalan Kota Siam heading to the side lane and emerging at Jalan Jelutong.

Traffic flow on Jalan Jelutong was changed to the present two-way system in mid-2007 after being one-way streets for 18 years. At the time, the reason for the switch was to ease jams as well.
