The development of infrastructure based on the global demand for services across the entire sector has caused numerous unfavourable environmental implications. Those development implications should be dealt with the sustainability opportunities lied in the planning phase, and sustainable design can be the critical success factor. Sustainable infrastructure rating systems are claimed as the most suitable tools for assessing infrastructure's environmental performance, especially in green highways. Subsequently, Building Information Modelling (BIM) is one of the technologies that can improve the green design of infrastructure. The approaches of both BIM and green highways are still fragmented. It is necessary to integrate BIM criteria in green highways' sustainable design to assess the performances' infrastructure rating systems better. The main objectives of this paper are to review the need for an integrative assessment framework of building information modeling (BIM) and sustainable design for green highway construction. This paper had a critical review of the related issues of BIM and green highway construction. This paper is in line with the recent Malaysian government initiative in the Construction 4.0 Strategic Plan (2021-2025) agenda (under Strategic Thrust 3) to transform the Malaysian construction industry by empowering innovative construction for the future society. This strategic plan aspiration is also supported by Malaysia's National Policy on Industry 4.0 and Sustainable Development Goal (SDG 17).
