Federal Route 19 is a federal road in the state of Malacca, Malaysia. The road connects Kampung Ulu Kendong in Negeri Sembilan to Malacca Town.[1]

Route background[edit]

The Kilometre Zero of the Federal Route 19 starts at Kampung Ulu Kendong at Negeri Sembilan-Melaka state border.

History[edit]

The road used to be the main railway line of Kemus-Malacca. The railway line was dismantled in 1942, following the Japanese occupation. In 2004, about 80% of the route from Melaka city to Simpang Ampat (including Melaka Bypass and Alor Gajah Bypass) was upgraded to a dual-carriageway known as Lebuh AMJ (Federal Route 19).

Features[edit]

At most section, the Federal Route 19 was built under the JKR R5 road standard as a dual-carriageway highway (except Kg. Gajah Mati-Alor Gajah-Kg. Melekek section and Taboh Naning-Ulu Kendong section) with partial access control, allowing maximum speed limit of up to 90 km/h.

There is one overlap: Bulatan Taboh Naning - Kampung Melekek, Kampung Gajah Mati - Malim Jaya (overlaps with 19 Lebuh AMJ)

There are no alternate routes or sections with motorcycle lanes.
