8 KL roads Renamed!

OSM Mappers,

I received the news just now that DBKL would be renaming 8 main roads in KL - http://www.themalaymailonline.com/malaysia/article/dbkl-to-rename-eight-major-roads-after-malay-rulers.

It will start tomorrow. My recommendation those based in KL to verify this. When changing names, put the old name as Historical name (my suggestion). E.g. Jalan Duta becomes historical name.

Please use the source above as reference source.



that should be old_name= Jalan Duta. → http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Name

By the way, this would just a royal pain in the ass for everybody. Damn ass kissers… :rage:

I would think updating the names after the signboards have changed is a better idea.
The new names have gotten longer and harder to remember.
