Abstract: Sabah is located in the northern part of Borneo Island. Three nations share the island namely Malaysia, Brunei, and Indonesia. The study focuses on the transportation network in the east coast of Sabah, mainly Semporna and Tawau. In general, most of the transportation network in Sabah is known to be in poor conditions. Although there are efforts to revamp the transportation system, it is met with heavy resistance due to budget constraints. Transportation network in Tawau and Semporna is in poor condition as heavy trucks especially from palm oil plantations, quarries, and logging areas pass through the main road which goes through village areas. For this study, the information is gathered by conducting site visitation to the areas, engaging with local communities as well as collecting feedback through surveys.
