Pan Borneo Highway (Lebuhraya Pan Borneo: ليبوهراي ڤن بورنيو), also known as Trans Borneo Highway, (Lebuhraya Trans Borneo: ليبوهراي ترنس بورنيو), (Federal route Jkr-ft1.png for Sarawak and Jkr-ftA1.png 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 latest section of the highway (Tenom - Sipitang section) is the most recent section completed in 2006. 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 File:Jkr-ft1-32.png in Sibu, Sarawak.


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]
