Jalan Grik, Perak... satu perjalanan dari Kelantan ke bahagian Utara


Jalan yang mencabar tetapi penuh dengan pemandangan yang cantik-cantik. 









The East-West Highway was built in the 1970 as a defence-related highway. In the early stages, there was military presence in every kilometre. The road was built to cut off the Communist Party of Malaya from the safe havens in Thailand. During construction, the highway was sabotaged and ambushed by the Communist terrorists during the Communist insurgency from 1970 to 1982. Many of workers were killed and the buldozers was seriously damaged. The East-West Highway was put under strict security control by Malaysian army when the highway was opened in 1 July 1982.[1] Motorists were allowed to use the highway at daytime only due to security reasons. The military control of the highway was lifted after the insurgency war was ended in 1989 (sumber : wikipedia : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East%E2%80%93West_Highway_(Malaysia)  )
