Key Significance of the Project
The areas along the west coast of Malaysia in the State of Kedah have had very little potential for development due to poor accessibility and inadequate infrastructure. The coastal region, which consists predominantly agriculture and fishery industries would greatly benefit from the provision of a coastal road. The approximate length of the preferred road alignment is 75 km.
