WAF and its shopping malls were the meeting points for visitors from across the causeway. Back then the several adjoining streets were abound with cheap and delicious food joints. The JB Sentral had totally marginalised WAF with CIQ traffic moved away from the area. With a new JB-Singapore subway line, things will get worse for the retailers and food store... More

This is one of the few main roads that runs through Johore Bahru town. 2 major shopping centres, City Square and the newly renovated TAR Complex are on this road. Do not walk on this road because there are often drug addicts and snatch thieves.
