The Sarawak Coastal Road Network is set to provide the Sarawak’s coastal area with better access and seamless connectivity between towns namely – Kota Samarahan, Sadong Jaya, Sebuyau, Kabong, Tanjong Manis, Daro, Matu, Balingian and Bintulu to the Pan Borneo Highway network and the Second Trunk Road project.

The network spans about 312km, and takes up five hours of driving at 60km/hour on a JKR R3-standard road.

This travel duration is excluding time taken for ferry crossings, which is supposed to be replaced by bridges in the near future.

The Sarawak government plans to connect the Sarawak Coastal Road Network to the Pan Borneo Highway.
