Mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Phesal Talib said the new names would take effect tomorrow.

He said City Hall had received the cabinet’s consent to rename the roads.

“This is to honour the rulers who have served as Yang di-Pertuan Agong.”

Phesal said Pos Malaysia would be informed of the changes to the road names to avoid confusion over addresses.
