Jalan Cheras refers to the former main road that was used by vehicles to travel between the city center and the Cheras township. It has been reported that there are hundreds of ‘Tamans’ in Cheras which means there are thousands of vehicles travelling around the vicinity each day. Jalan Cheras is an important access road which starts from the Pudu roundabout and continues on, passing by Taman Maluri, Taman Pertama before reaching Taman Cheras. From there, this road will continue on, connecting towards the likes of Bandar Mahkota Cheras and further into Kajang and Semenyih.
Although a new access road has been built and used by those travelling between Cheras and the city which is Jalan Loke Yew, Jalan Cheras is still very heavy with traffic, mainly due to the fact that it provides access to other parts of this suburb.
Available Advertising Medium
Along Jalan Cheras, there are a few main advertising mediums with the most common one being billboards. This can be seen along the side of the road where visibility is very high. Apart from that, panels on lamp posts are available where there are more than 30 units available on both sides of Jalan Cheras. There are several overhead bridges which are used by pedestrians and vehicles which can be used for billboards as well.
The buying power for ad space along Jalan Cheras is medium because this road is mainly targeted at the middle to high income groups of this suburb.
