Highway system

Central Spine Road (CSR) or Kuala Krai–Kuala Pilah Highway, Federal Route 34, is a new toll-free highway under construction in the center of Peninsular Malaysia. The 325 km (201 miles) highway is built to eventually replace the former two-lane Federal Route 8 Gua Musang Highway and Federal Route 9 Karak–Tampin highway. Construction of CSR starts at Package 3 which is from Merapoh to Kampung Relong. It commences at Package 3 as the Gua Musang Highway passes through Chegar Perah which is prone to roadkill. The highway has a long eco-viaduct built in this section. Package 5 which is from north Raub to Karak will be built next, which will connect it to E8 Kuala Lumpur–Karak Expressway bypassing Bentong and Mempaga. This will help detour traffic from the steep mountainous grade between Raub and Bentong.

History[edit]

  • On 15 December 2016, section 3H (Kg. Kechur to Kg. Sbrg. Jelai) was opened to traffic

Phase 1 is a 51km stretch from Kuala Krai to Jambatan Sungai Lakit in Kelantan. Phase 2 spans 63km from Jambatan Sungai Lakit to Gua Musang in Kelantan and Phase 3 covers 107km from Gua Musang to Kampung Relong in Pahang. Phase 4 comprises 56km from Kampung Relong to Raub in Pahang and Phase 5, 54km from Raub to Bentong. The final stretch, Phase 6, is 47km and connects Bentong and Simpang Pelangai.

Features[edit]

  • Four lanes, two on each side[1]
  • A long eco-viaduct for wild animals crossing
  • Some sections are concrete paved, making CSR as the only newly completed road paved using concrete

In most sections, the original Federal Route was built under JKR R5 road standards, allowing maximum speed limit of up to 90 km/h.

From Kampung Sungai Yu to Chegar Perah and from Chegar Perah to Bukit Tujuh, it overlaps Federal Route 8 Merapoh Highway.

Federal Route 8 may eventually remain as an alternative route.

There are no sections with motorcycle lanes.
