Malaysia mulls rubber roads

A pilot project has been completed in Malaysia to test whether roads there can be constructed using rubber.

Famous around the world for its rubber production, Malaysia has access to an enormous amount of the material and used it in five 1km stretches of pilot roads to test its effectiveness.

If the tests prove successful, the government will consider expanding their use to major highways. The 1,000km Pan-Borneo Highway which will connect the Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak with Brunei would be the first major project to benefit.

While being more expensive to build than conventional roads, a 60 percent fall in the price of rubber has seen alternative markets being sought.
