/ Transitional


Transform the Old City Centre into a pedestrianised section. Transition from a car-centric to a people-centric zone. Increase space for people and reduce space for vehicles. Pedestrianise the streets and support the inclusion of cycling and non-motorised vehicles whilst sharing the road with Utilitarian / Service vehicles only. Provide special access for residences through the use of *Back Alleys.

Tangible Objectives
Create “entry-point gateways” into pedestrian-priority sections
Traffic-calming infrastructure and junctions
Locate Transport Nodes and coincide with bicycle sharing schemes
Return Kuala Lumpur to its original grade level (in this context, the five- foot-way level)

Policy, Program & Campaign
Central Old District Pedestrian Section
