Kek Chuan Road, George Town, Penang (25 November, 2012)

Kek Chuan Road, or Jalan Kek Chuan, is a minor road in George Town, Penang. It leads from Macalister Road to the junction with Selangor Road and Irving Road.

Kek Chuan Road was laid out at the early part of the 20th century. It was named after Lim Kek Chuan, the co-founder and first President of the Penang Chinese Chamber of Commerce.

A turn of the century developer, Kek Chuan owned some 17 shophouses along the road that today bears his name. He was also the founder of the Chinese Recreation Club and acted as Trustee of the Chinese Town Hall. Some of the townhouses on Kek Chuan Road have been restored and are now readapted as shophouses, collectively known as the Kau Keng Choo.
