In many countries, Kilometre Zero (also written km 0) or similar terms in other languages (also known as zero mile marker, control stations or control points) is a particular location (usually in the nation's capital city) from which distances are traditionally measured. Historically, they were markers where drivers could set their odometers to follow the directions in early guide books.
The Kilometre Zero marker for roads and highways in Peninsular Malaysia is one of the rare cases where the marker is not located at the national capital. This is due to the fact that the distances for three major backbone routes (Federal Routes 1, 3 and 5) are measured from Johor Bahru, where the three routes meet and connect to Singapore via the Johor–Singapore Causeway.
There are currently two markers, the smaller one being the official Kilometre Zero marker.
