Default Highway linking Banting to Larut Matang

I was told that a Federal funded toll free highway is currently being built along our West coast covering most of Perak's coast with the straits of Malacca. The said highway linking Banting to Kuala Sepetang perhaps would be toll free and serve as an alternative to the PAY PAY PAY PLUS highway? Anybody got any update or news?

The 3rd east-west highway linking Ipoh to Kuala Terengganu is another long delayed project. The last stretch of highway from Gua Musang to Kuala Berang in Terengganu has taken ages to complete.
When completed, it will cut the road journey to Terengganu from the present 7 hours to 4.5 hours.

No toll/income from such highways mah, that's why they are not given priority.
