Experts are the academician, professional from government agency and private sector that have been involved in highway projects. This study focuses on the suitable design criteria for expressway and toll highway. The suitable design criteria and sub-criteria of sustainable design was analysed using the factor analysis. From the analysis, there are two criteria and seven sub-criteria of sustainable design that is suitable with Malaysian highway condition. Factor score were determined by multiplying the factor loading with a mean of each sub-criteria. Factor score were used as a weighting for determine the score point of sustainable design criteria and sub-criteria
