You see the RouteConfig file in C#. To implement the routing in VB application you have to add RouteConfig.vb file instead of RouteConfig.cs and write the code:
Imports System.Web.Routing
Imports Microsoft.AspNet.FriendlyUrls

    Public Shared Sub RegisterRoutes(routes As RouteCollection)
        Dim settings = New FriendlyUrlSettings()
        settings.AutoRedirectMode = RedirectMode.Permanent
        routes.EnableFriendlyUrls(settings)
    End Sub

Note: You can delete/exclude the Site.Mobile.Master and ViewSwitcher.ascx files if you want.

Step 2:
Add a Global.asax file to application. Write the following code to file:
using System.Web.Routing;

protected void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            RouteConfig.RegisterRoutes(RouteTable.Routes);
        }

Imports System.Web.Routing

Sub Application_Start(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
        RouteConfig.RegisterRoutes(RouteTable.Routes)
End Sub


Build the application, run and check the result.
