Highway system

Federal Route 76 is a federal highway in Kedah and Perak state, Malaysia. The 163.7-km federal highway serves as the main route from Perak and Kedah to the East-West Highway FT4, as well as the main route to Thailand via Keroh and Betong.[1]

Route background[edit]

The Kilometre Zero of the Federal Route 76 starts at Kuala Kangsar (West) interchange, Perak, at its interchange with the Malaysia Federal Route 1, the main trunk road of the central of Peninsular Malaysia.[2]

History[edit]

The Federal Route 76 is an important route in Perak, as it leads to the East-West Highway FT4 from Gerik to Jeli. In addition, this federal highway also serves as the gateway to Thailand via Keroh and Betong and vice versa. However, the original alignment of the highway was notorious for its many dangerous sharp corners.[2] To address the safety issue, the federal government upgraded the Kuala Kangsar-Gerik section of the highway, bypassing the sharp corners along the Sauk-Lenggong section. The first section from Gerik to Lenggong was completed in 1995, followed by the second section from Kuala Kangsar to Sauk which was completed in 2002.[3] The final section from Sauk to Lenggong was upgraded as a bypass route to avoid the dangerous sharp corners along the former section of the FT76 highway.[2] The project was started in October 2001 and was completed on November 2005 with the total cost of RM600 million.[1][3]

As a result of the road upgrade, the former Sauk-Lenggong section was later downgraded into Perak State Route A76 in 2014.[4]
