Scope and Contents

242 x 169 mm. Showing flyovers at the Kuala Lumpur section of the Asian Highway. A note on the reverse of the print reads:

'The Asian Highway, a project initiated in 1958 by ECAFE, aims at modernizing and linking up existing roads into a 34,000-mile network of highways that would span Asia from Turkey and Iraq to the Republic of Viet-Nam, Singapore and Indonesia. Priority Route A-1 runs from Saigon through eight countries, while Priority Route A-2 runs from the Iraq border to Singapore and continuing to Indonesia via ferry. Member governments have invested large sums to improve their roads, and in some cases, to eliminate the missing links between them and their neighbors.

A stretch of the new highway, built by the Malaysian Government, which is one of the connecting links in Route A-2. In the background is the Moorish-style Railway Station and at right is the strikingly modern mosque.'
