Highway system

Jalan Syed Putra (formerly Lornie Drive), Federal Route 2 is a major highway in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It was named after Almarhum Tuanku Syed Putra ibni Almarhum Syed Hassan Jamalullail of Perlis, the third Yang di-Pertuan Agong, which used to reside at Istana Negara which lies at one end of the highway.

Jalan Syed Putra was known as Lornie Drive during the British administration. It was named after J. Lornie, one of the British Residents of Selangor in the 1920s. Lornie was also the president of the Royal Selangor Golf Club in 1926.

Landmarks[edit]

At the helm of the highway is Wisma Tun Sambathan, which stands tall over the rest of the structures in the area. Surrounding the building are small banks and offices including the Darul Takaful Finance Area, which was the UMBC Bank building and then the Sime Darby Securities office.

Kuen Cheng Girls School, one of the country's top schools, sits next to Istana Negara, which is located in between Jalan Syed Putra and Jalan Kuching. Temples along b the road include the Yuen Tong Chee. There are many old shop houses along the road that cater to the local community in Robson Hill.

Further down the highway sits the KEMAS training centre that is facilitated by the Rural and Regional Development Ministry. The headquarters of the Selangor and Federal Territory Family Planning Association and the Malaysian International Youth Home are also along the road.

The Mid Valley Megamall that sits at the end of the highway.

Infrastructure[edit]

Along the highway runs Klang River, which has now been paved to support heavy monsoon rain and modern development.

Jalan Syed Putra is now connected to Jalan Tun Sambanthan through different roads while before it was only connected through a bridge across the Klang River.
