Despite all the headlines we are seeing about the recent hikes in toll rates around the Klang Valley, Prime Minister Najib Razak has pledged that the 1,090km Pan-Borneo Expressway, will be toll-free when it is completed.

According to Najib Razak at today’s tabling of the 2016 Budget, the 1,090km Pan-Borneo Expressway - which stretches from Sarawak to Sabah - is expected to be finished in 2021 at an estimated cost of RM16.1 billion. To add to that, the government will also be building a 706km highway from Sindumin to Tawau in Sabah at an estimated cost of RM12.8 billion next year.
