Traffic at Minden Heights

Minden Heights is a low density area bordered by two major roads, Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah and Jalan Bukit Gambier. The Sungai Nibong Expressway takes some load off Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah which nonetheless still gets quite congested during rush hour, particularly on Friday evenings, with traffic heading towards the Penang Bridge.

Minden Heights is a choice neighbourhood for the affluent, and is perhaps second only to Jesselton Heights as being the choicest real estate on Penang Island. If you can afford an address here, you will have very much "arrived" in Penang.
