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.
