The tender will be issued for construction work on the AH150 Trans-Borneo Highway project during 2020. The tender should be opening in August 2020 if it stays on schedule. Also known as the Pan Borneo Highway and Trans-Kalimantan Highway, the circular AH150 route is an important link for the island of Borneo. This latest tender is for the stretch that connects Sabah and Sarawak in Malaysia with Brunei as well as Indonesia’s Kalimantan Region.

Work for the 40km highway stretch opening to tender will cost some US$144.7 million. The plans will also include building customs facilities at Serundong in Sabah. This will be the third important road project carried out on Borneo, following on from the earlier Pan Borneo Highway work and Sarawak-Sabah Link Road (SSLR).
