Being situated in eastern Malaysia, Sabah is one of the states which have a firm economic foundation through agriculture, forestry as well as petroleum industries. However, even though it is rich with the natural resources that have long served for the country’s economic growth, as a whole, Sabah is considered a little behind her counterparts in the Peninsular Malaysia in terms of infrastructure and development. This study mainly examines the transportation network in Semporna, Tawau and Lahad Datu which is mostly in poor condition. This is because it is extensively used for the industrial activities including logging, palm industries and quarries. Based on the survey, it is found that the road mostly had potholes, edge raveling, uneven surfaces, road rutting, congestion problems and limited parking spaces. Hence, it is recommended to do the pavement repairs, solid foundation work as well as enhancing the existing public transportation system especially in the rural areas in Sabah.
