Pan Borneo Highway

Pan Borneo Highway (Lebuhraya Pan Borneo: ليبوهراي ڤن بورنيو), also known as Trans Borneo Highway, (Lebuhraya Trans Borneo: ليبوهراي ترنس بورنيو), (Federal route for Sarawak and for Sabah, National route 1 for Brunei) is a network of federal roads connecting Sarawak, Brunei and Sabah. The Pan Borneo Highway project is a joint project between the governments of Brunei and Malaysia. The project started as soon as Sarawak and Sabah joined the federation of Malaysia in 1963. The lack of a road network system in Sarawak was the main factor of the construction. The section that connects Sarawak, Sabah and Brunei is the Lawas - Temburong (Brunei) stretch, completed in 1997. The completion of the stretch made traveling by car from Kuching to Kota Kinabalu possible. However, the government continues to build newer sections to connect rural areas in Sarawak.

The length of the entire highway system is expected to be about 1047.18 km. As of 2002, about 997.18 km or 95.2% of the highway has been completed. The Tenom - Sipitang section, completed in 2006, is the newest section of the highway. The construction of the final section from Kalabakan to Sepulut is expected to begin in 2008, therefore the entire Pan Borneo Highway is expected to be fully completed within the Ninth Malaysia Plan period.

The standards of Pan Borneo Highway
In general, the Pan Borneo Highway uses the same standards used in the Malaysian federal roads. However, the coding system used in the highway is different from other federal roads. The syntax for Pan Borneo Highway codes is xx-yy, where xx is the route number and yy is the section code. For example in Sibu, Sarawak.




[edit] The route
The official route for the highway actually begins at Miri, and it continues north towards Brunei, Limbang and Lawas in Sarawak, into Sabah via Sindumin, and onto Sipitang, Beaufort, Papar, Kota Kinabalu, Sandakan, Lahad Datu, Tawau and ends at Serudong on the Sabah/East Kalimantan border. The highway also extends southwards from Miri towards Bintulu, Sibu and Kuching, and ends at Sematan on the West Kalimantan/Sarawak border.[1]

The grand highway leading into Bandar Seri Begawan.

It passes by the equally grand mosque, the new-ish Jame’ ‘Asr Hassanil Bolkiah.

Now we head out of town, towards Tutong and the west.

This is the only interstate (or shall I say, intercountry) highway in Brunei, linking Muara at the eastern tip to Kuala Belait and the Malaysian border at the western end.


The main street of Tutong …

… where two Chinese kopitiams are still open for business. Note the Jawi scripts.

An excerpt from the Brunei Highway Code. It was still being used in the 1980s but was probably originally published a lot earler.

The roads, probably due to the markings, look quite British but neater.

Notice the speed limit of 100 km/h at Tungku Link.

The signboard reads: Jalanraya Berkembar Di Hadapan (Dual Carriageway Ahead).

The stretch of the single-carriageway Pan Borneo Highway from Miri to Kuala Belait. It seems that the motorway sign is used to mark the motorways and dual-carriageways.

It seems that the main highways in Brunei are more like divided highways rather than motorways. Most probably due to the small population size in Brunei, which makes construction of long access-controlled motorways less economic, though Brunei is rich of oil.
