Since 2010, Federal Route FT050 (Jalan Batu Pahat-Kluang) has undergone many changes, including the improvement of geometric features (i.e., construction of median, dedicated U-turns and additional lanes) and upgrading the quality of the road surface. Unfortunately, even with these enhancements, accidents continue to occur along this route. This study covered both accident analysis and blackspot study. Accident point weightage was used to identify blackspot locations. The results reveal hazardous road locations and blackspot ranking along the route.
