I traveled all the way from Singapore to Bangkok via Malaysia (stopping for a few days in KL) on a bus. I was very much impressed with the quality of the motorway to say the least. Traffic seems quite heavy around KL though.

Well, better than what they do over here, putting tens of thousands of euros in "art" on a stupid roundabout. A while ago, a new art of several tens of thousands of euros was put on a roundabout. You won't believe what it was; a gold case buried under the ground with an arrow on top of it to show there was art under the ground.
I don't pay tax for this nonsense for pete's sake!
So yes, I think landscaping is way better than wasting money on art only a few people like.

This costs $ 100.000

Yup I agree with u on this..not everyone appreciate arts and for me sometimes I just don't understand these so called art structures in some places and I guess it's not just me who think that way but majority of us. Sometimes I see these structures are ugly and they're supposed not to be there in the first place (no offense to art lovers) but I think if the cost is reasonable and the complexity of the structure is simple..that's OK for me but these structures are often prone to vandalism.
Even in Malaysia itself has many fake plastic coconut trees planted near junctions in some towns which is an eyesore and waste of public money .

New highways planned for future development




Project : East Coast Expressway Phase III & IV

Location : Kuala Terengganu to Kota Bharu (III) Kuantan to Johor Bahru (IV)

Description

East Coast Expressway (ECE) III is an extension of East Coast Expressway (ECE) II which is under construction. ECE III will connect Kg. Gemuroh (Kuala Terengganu) to Kota Bharu, Kelantan; ending at Pengkalan Kubor, with an approximate length of 171 km.

Phase IV of the ECE runs to the south, connecting Kuantan all the way to Johor Bahru.

Project Rationale

The rationale for the implementation of ECE Phases III and IV is to provide a complete highway-standard transport backbone for the main economic corridors in the ECER. The ECE will provide improved connectivity within the corridor including to the main regional centre and growth areas. It will also improve the ECER's access to the rest of Peninsular Malaysia as well as Thailand and Singapore.

The reduced traveling time will have a dramatic impact on the economic viability of projects within the ECER. While it is generally acknowledged that the North-South Expressway has played a significant role in spurring economic developments on the western side of Peninsular Malaysia, it is hoped that the East Coast Expressway (ECE) will have a similar profound impact on the ECER states.
