Work in progress - please use this road classification if you work on building the map for Malaysia

Minor Highways

All the remaining highways like MRR2. All highways classified as Federal Routes (JKR), labeled with only numbers from 1 till currently 3374, and State Routes, labeled with a state-code prefix (same as state car registration letters) followed by route number. Please do put those numbers IN FRONT of the road names, not at the end. Also, don't put any SPACE between the letter of the state road and the number itself, so it's P17 and not P 17. Thank you!

Examples are:

26 KLIA Expressway

28 Jalan Lingkaran Tengah 2 (MRR2)

(Perak state route) A151 Jalan Sultan Abdullah

(Selangor State Route) B27 Jalan Batu Arang

Primary roads

All the roads not named in 1-3 and still color orange in Google Maps. Examples are:

Jalan Kuching in Kuala Lumpur



When traffic moves between two roads or highways that are at different grades without the use of traffic lights or stop signs, they use ramps. The typical example is the on-ramps or off-ramps of a highway. Roads connecting a highway with a rest/service/parking area should be treated as ramps as well and named accordingly (e.g. "Exit to Service Area").

When traffic moves between two roads that are at the same grade, these connecting segments are not technically ramps to Waze. These cases should be treated as At-Grade Connectors. Access roads to highways at the same grade are service roads (see below)

Only exception from the above rule of Same-Grade-Connector should be a ramp if it's a signed, numbered exit of a highway (like Exit 116 Rawang on E1 North-South Expressway (NSE Northern Route).


all other regular streets

Service Roads

These are streets that are typically adjacent to a freeway (or major highway). Also called Frontage roads in some states. These could be access roads to the highway itself, but have the property of a regular or primary street.

Private Roads

A road that is not open to the public. You can drive on it, physically, but there may be legal (and physical) restrictions or it is a privately maintained road on private land.

Road Cities

Parks (Taman), Zone and suburbs should not be used for the City field when marking your roads. A good indicator is if the area has a city council or municipal council, use the name of the city or municipal council.

Refer to to see where city boundaries are. Please note that the street names on this map may not be entirely accurate. However, the street names here more often than not is more accurate than the one found in Google Maps.

Please follow these guidelines on all accounts, as otherwise your work needs to be corrected again and will create doublework. Don't use CAPITAL LETTER ONLY, besides being regarded as rude this is also not in line with GPS tools naming conventions and Google Maps.

Please do use the above name only, no other than these official names. If you have other names (eg known only known to locals) use the alternative names field in Waze edit. If you are not sure about changing the name of a road, it is best to ask in the Waze forum or here in the Facebook group.

Lastly, do check Google Maps a lot for how to write a road segment, if it's eg a normal street or primary street instead (Orange color).
