Jalan Bukit Kukus is a hill road in Paya Terubong, Penang. It connects with Lebuhraya Thean Teik to the north, and is a no-through road in the south. Another fragment of Jalan Bukit Kukus begins at its junction with Lorong Bukit Kukus and continues a short distance south. The northern portion of Jalan Bukit Kukus forms a junction with Lorong Semarak Api 3, providing access to the hill-rise apartment blocks on the southern part of the Farlim neighbourhood.

Jalan Bukit Kukus has been earmarked for extension, to evntually connect with Lebuh Bukit Jambul. In so doing, it becomes a parallel route to Jalan Paya Terubong, providing alternative access for commuters in the Air Itam area to reach the southern districts of Relau and Bayan Baru. When completed, it forms an important conduit for commuters living in the working class neighbourhoods of Paya Terubong and Air Itam to reach their work place at the Bayan Lepas FIZ.

The entire Jalan Bukit Kukus will be 4.87 km in length, according to the Penang Island Municipal Council engineering department deputy director, A. Rajendran. As of now, 1.22 km of the road has been constructed. The remaining 3.65 km will be built at a cost of RM300 million.

The Jalan Bukit Kukus project is jointly undertaken by the Municipal Council (now Penang Island City Council) and a private developer in two stages. The first stage, costing RM60 million, connects Lebuhraya Thean Teik to Tingkat Paya Terubong 1, and is expected to be completed in 2017. The second stage, from Tingkat Paya Terubong 1, through the Bukit Saujana and Sun Moon City development, will eventually link it to Lebuh Bukit Jambul, and will be completed in six years.
