APARTMENT DIRECTORY : JELUTONG

Jelutong is a town in Penang just right outside of Georgetown - a working class suburb named after the Jelutung tree (Dyera costulata). However, it is no longer possible to find any jelutong growing in the namesake neighbourhood.

The main road leading to Jelutong town centre is Jalan Jelutong. Predominantly a residential area, the major areas of interest are its famous local food stalls. A new coastal highway connecting Georgetown to Bayan Lepas named the Jelutong Expressway has since been constructed to solve the traffic woes on the main Jalan Jelutong.

The development of Jelutong goes back to the turn of the 20th century, as the population spills southward from the city. Until the early 1990's, the coastal areas along Jelutong was still a mangrove swamp, and the primary occupation there was the making of charcoal. This has been gradually phased out, although still possible to visit some of the charcoal makers in places such as Lebuh Bakau.

In the 1970's, Jelutong was a working class neighbourhood. Over the decades, the social problem has very much been eradicated with the gradual improvement of living standards. Since the mid 1980's, a number of high-rise apartments have been constructed to provide housing to the lower and middle income wage earners. The neighbourhood is predominantly Chinese in character, although there are pockets of Malay enclaves such as around Masjid Jamek Jelutong and Jalan Madrasah.
