A new highway project being proposed for Malaysia will improve connectivity for the country’s Kuantan and Johor Baru regions.
This new route will initially measure 350km but could then be extended to connect with neighbouring Thailand and become the main East Coast highway. The project has been put forward by the Pahang Federation of Chinese Associations (Huazong). Construction of this link could provide major economic benefits to the Kuantan and Johor Baru regions and in the long term would help promote trade with neighbouring Thailand. The highway project will also connect the growth areas of both Johor and Pahang, further developing local economies.
