What is that elevated structure they are building? It seems too narrow for an elevated road.

These expressways are disproportionately longer than urban or interurban expressways in Malaysia.

Most of expressways in Malaysia are built by private initiatives with BOT method. The long interstate highways are costly and are not viable due to low population density. Hence the government will finance the E8 extension, upgrade of FT8 to new alignment dual carriageway. Some portion of FT8 is completed already with dual carriageway specs and access limited. However West Coast Expressway are privately financed.

In Sabah & Sarawak, the government will upgrade the current single carriageway of main trunk road to double carriageway. Some of the section, the construction began already. Whether it is access controlled or not, there is not enough info at the moment.

The Pan Borneo Highway project is simply an upgrade of the existing trunk road network to limited-access divided highway and not as controlled-access expressway.

Upgrade on the Sarawak section of Pan-Borneo Highway

Bintulu-Miri stretch






Quote:
About Pan Borneo Highway Sarawak

The origins of a planned trunk road connecting the expansive states of Sarawak and Sabah with Brunei in between date back to the 1960s when it was known as the Trans-Borneo Highway.

The impetus for improved road connectivity across Sabah and Sarawak grew in the ‘70s, leading to a plan by the Governments of Malaysia (both Federal and State), Brunei and Kalimantan Indonesia to develop further the idea of constructing a highway along the coastline of Borneo. It would be called the Pan Borneo Highway.

Fast forward 50 years later and Sarawak’s major trunk road system today is the Federal Route 1, part of the Pan Borneo Highway or Trans Borneo Highway. It is mainly a 2-lane single carriageway of JKR R3 standard design. Only 144 km (13%) of the trunk road from Sematan to Lawas is a 4-lane dual carriageway of JKR R5 standard. Travel across the vast state of Sarawak continues to be a long journey – up to 19 hours from Sematan to Miri currently.

To accelerate the social and economic growth of Sabah and Sarawak, a major effort to fully develop and upgrade the Pan Borneo Highway was announced by Malaysia’s Prime Minister in April 2013 as part of the ruling political party Barisan Nasional’s “Akujanji” manifesto to the Nation. This was followed by a commitment in Budget 2015.

Pan Borneo Highway Sarawak was officially launched by the Prime Minister in Bintulu on 31 March 2015. Construction works along a 43 km stretch from the Nyabau to Bakun junctions began soon after.

When completed in early 2022, Pan Borneo Highway Sarawak from Telok Melano to Merapok will span a total distance of 1,089 km. Pan Borneo Highway is slated to be THE transportation backbone of the states of Sabah and Sarawak and will play a major role to open up economic corridors and opportunities in areas it transverses.

diverging diamond interchanges

I learned that Malaysia has diverging diamond interchanges. There are at least three of them along E11. Some of them appear to be substantially older than the one in Durban, South Africa that is claimed to be the first DDI in a country that drives on the left (opened 2013).

Exit 1102 Penchala Interchange.


Exit 1111 Freescale Interchange. Reportedly opened in 1999.


Exit 1114 Puchong Jaya Interchange. Reconstructed in late 2015.

Some east Asian cities have expressway networks that are so dense that they in many cases expressways cross each other without an interchange. This is not uncommon in Kuala Lumpur, but also for example in Seoul. A pro of this approach is that a traffic jam is less likely to result in a regional gridlock if expressway-to-expressway interchanges are only 3 km apart.
