At the recent launch of Bank Rakyat’s new headquarters, officially christened the Bank Rakyat Twin Towers, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced that a portion of Jalan Travers running in front of the buildings has now been renamed to Jalan Rakyat.

The 300 m stretch links the Jalan Tun Sambanthan intersection with the intersection between Jalan Bangsar and Jalan Travers.

“It is to perpetuate the name of Bank Rakyat and celebrate the people who are the lifeblood of the excellence of Bank Rakyat, comprising the multiracial members, clients and society throughout the country,” the premier said at the event.
