Jalan Paya Terubong is one of the main roads on Penang Island. It runs through the central part of the island connecting Air Itam to the north with Relau in the south, a distance of some 8.4 km. The road itself was named after the township of Paya Terubong, which began as a hill village in the centre of the island.
Once a hill path, Jalan Paya Terubong has seen an increase in traffic over the past two decades. This is attributed to the increase in the population of Paya Terubong. As many work in the Bayan Lepas area, Jalan Paya Terubong forms the only artery connecting the two areas. As a result, the road is highly congested particularly during the morning and evening rush hour.
