Oman & Namibia have almost no motorways. They are probably adequate for their population size though.

Malaysia has a huge network of expressways around Kuala Lumpur, but other than the East Coast Expressway and North-South Expressway there aren't as many expressways (not to mention in Sarawak & Sabah).

Your thoughts?
Just judging from the pics posted here alone, from an outsider's point of view, what do you think? Or if you have been to Malaysia, that would be an even better opinion.....As a citizen here, yes I do agree we have some of the best roads and network, having travelled to many countries within the region and Europe....

But to rank it even better than the Scandy countries, it's abit of a stretch I think....then again I could be proven wrong.....A fair rank would be somewhere between the 30s......

That is again, just my personal opinion

The first and last time I was in Malaysia was in 2003.....and the coverage as well as the quality of the road network at that time is superb.

I can now see why Malaysia is on-track to become the next first world / developed economy in South East Asia on or before year 2020

Well at least the areas more frequented by tourist or motorist are lacking of portholes...

West Coast Expressway (E32)

Alignment map





Expressway code: E32
Length: 233 km
status: Under construction

Designed to serve ever expanding coastal towns of Lumut-Manjung, Sabak Bernam, Tanjung Karang, Klang and Banting. The alignment also runs parallel to North-South expressway (E1) 20km to 60 km west of E1, therefore will provide alternative route during festive seasons and public holidays (the jam will often clog the whole expressway up to Penang).

The southern E32 starts at Banting and ends at Changkat Jering interchange of E1.

Because most of the population live along those expressways anyways, the need for expressways in other regions is low.
