Jalan Trus, Johor BahruJalan Trus, Johor Bahru (15 September, 2016)




Jalan Trus is one of the main roads in downtown Johor Bahru. It runs roughly parallel to Jalan Wong Ah Fook and Jalan Tun Abdul Razak, both of which much wider than it. In comparison, Jalan Trus has a more neighbourhood feel. It also forms intersections with Jalan Dhoby and Jalan Tan Hiok Nee; and a T-junction with Jalan Segget. One stretch of Jalan Trus is decidedly Chinese, around the Johor Bahru Old Chinese Temple, while the next section is Indian, and in between these, there stands Johor Bahru's Sikh Gurdwara.

The section of Jalan Trus between Jalan Ungku Puan and Jalan Ibrahim preserves the look and feel of the city before it boomed into a metropolis. Along this stretch, you can still find newsagents selling newspapers and candies by the roadside, coffee shops that spill onto the sidewalks, and shophouses can come right to the edge of the pavement. North of Jalan Ungku Puan, the road opens up, due to redevelopment that today gives us the Galleria @ Kotaraya and The Puteri Pacific Hotel.

Jalan Trus is home to a number of street art murals sponsor by Petronas in 2015. These are called the #tanahairku Street Art.
