History[edit]

Built in 1961, it was the first road to be built as an expansion into Jurong conceived at that time to be an industrial area. After the passing of Ahmad Ibrahim, in his honor, when the road was finished in 1965, it was named after him.[2] Jalan Ahmad Ibrahim first started from Jalan Bahru Selatan[3] (Now Jurong Town Hall Road) to Jalan Bandaran/Jalan Besi[4] (Now Pioneer Road/Pioneer Road North).

Sometime in the 1998, Ayer Rajah Expressway was further expended into Tuas. The extension followed the alignment of Jalan Ahmad Ibrahim. The road was widen, all roundabouts were replaced with flyovers and interchanges and slip roads were built along some parts of the expressway to serve the existing establishments along the road. Eventually the slip roads took on the name "Jalan Ahmad Ibrahim".
