Kelantan is periodically exposed to flash floods that result in major human and economical damages. That is due to several factors including its rugged topography and geological structures. Hence, precise assessment of floods becomes more vital demand in development planning. Kelantan have several federal roads that connected to other state roads. The floods caused great damage to properties and human lives including some of Kelantan federal and state roads. There are various methods used in attempt toprovide the most reliable ways to reduce the flood risk and damage on road network in Kelantan. Geographic Information System (GIS) spatial database was applied for analyzing the data of the main street, river and geological information on a map. This study important for identification and mapping flood area of road network that are beneficial for flood management and distributes information to society. The data have been collected from the field investigations and historical flood areas reports. A GIS software was applied for analyzing the data to demonstrate the differential zones of the flood. The result shows the area that prone to flood are based on three possibilities whichare low, medium and high. This study shows average of high hazard area for flood tooccur is 512.441 km2 with a percentage of 70%. Meanwhile, for medium hazard area is 211.220 km2 with percentage of 20% and low hazard area is 87.140 km2 with the percentage of 10%. This study measure impacts on flood hazard towards road network by producing a flood hazard map in Kelantan
