Cockman Street of Today

The session of Cockman Street (Jalan Dato Oon Jaafar) between the junctions of Hugh Low Street & Brewster Road is always a congested area where the Central Market is the major contributor. Traffic will become worst during Chinese New Year because there are many shops of prayer goods & new year decoration. It is beyond dispute that Cockman Street is one of the busiest streets in town. It was even more congested at 1990’s before the closure of Super Kinta Department Store, which was the hottest shopping center in the Central Market building. And the first McDonald’s is open right opposite to it. However, since some modern shopping malls opened at the city outskirts, popularity of Cockman Street dropped drastically. Now it is basically a hub for traditional businesses.
