One of the oldest thoroughfares in Kuala Lumpur, Old Klang Road or Jalan Klang Lama has seen considerable change over the past decade as new developments sprout up along the busy stretch of approximately 11km.
Lined by a mix of old shops and new commercial buildings as well as newer high-rise residences, the major artery is said to have been built over a century ago by the British colonial government and was the only trunk road linking Kuala Lumpur and Port Klang before the Federal Highway was completed in 1965.
The area abutting Old Klang Road is strategically located between Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya, with easy access to numerous amenities in places such as Mid Valley City, Bandar Sunway, Puchong and Sri Petaling.
Old Klang Road was named as such as it provided access to Klang from Kuala Lumpur, says VPC Alliance managing director James Wong. “Since the opening of Mid Valley City in 1999, developers had started to build along Old Klang Road as they could foresee a high demand for developments there in the future.”
