RM5 mln to upgrade Tedungan CIQS


LIMBANG: A sum of RM5 million has been allocated by the Northern Region Development Agency (NRDA) to upgrade the Tedungan Customs, Immigration, Quarantine and Security (CIQS) complex.

According to the Sarawak Public Communications Unit (Ukas) on Monday (June 28), Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan had said the upgrading work included rewiring, installation of air conditioning, building a surau and public toilets, all expected to be completed by November.

“The old wiring needs to be replaced because it is dangerous and we do want any unwanted incidents. So, we have already given priority to this.

“The CIQS is a gateway and its role is very important. We also want the staff to work in a comfortable and safe environment.”

He said this after handing over food donations to officers at the Tedungan CIQS.

The Tedungan CIQS is the main gateway for travellers from Miri who transit through Brunei.

Awang Tengah had also instructed NRDA director Datuk Ubaidilah Abdul Latip to discuss with Sarawak Energy Berhad (SEB) to fix the generator at the Tedungan CIQS.

He said the Limbang Immigration Department had applied for a new generator because the existing one was problematic.

Meanwhile, the food donations were contributed by Bukit Kota assemblyman Datuk Abdul Rahman Ismail and his Batu Danau counterpart Paulus Palu Gumbang.
