KUCHING, Sept 13 (Bernama) -- On paper, the 2,000-kilometre long Pan Borneo Highway stretches from Telok Melano at the southwestern tip of Sarawak to Serudong in Sabah across Brunei. Now in its third year of implementation, the mega project is being viewed as a potential game changer that can catalyse the economic growth in the areas where the road traverses.
