Malaysia is developing its transport infrastructure with a series of new works intended to improve its network. A budget of US$625.6 million has been set by the Ministry of Public Works that will be directed towards federal road maintenance works and projects in Johor during 2022.

A new pilot project will investigate the Performance Based Contract (PBC) model. Work will be carried out on the FT005, FT003 and FT001 federal routes. If these roads are damaged during the duration of the contract, any repairs will be the responsibility of the firm that handled the work. New lighting will also be installed on the Mersing-Kota Tinggi Road.

A further $241.3 million will be used for maintaining federal roads in Negeri Sembilan, Johor and Pahang.
