KUCHING: The relevant agencies have given approval to the construction of the proposed security enforcement agency offices at the Tapak Megah site in Bukit Mabong District, 20km away from the Sarawak-Kalimantan border.

Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri James Jemut Masing revealed that the Tapak Megah would be the future site for the General Operations Force (PGA), Malaysian Armed Forces (ATM) and Immigration offices.

“These sites have been approved by the relevant agencies. Construction will begin when accessibility to Tapak Megah 1 (TM1) is done,” he said after a visit to the proposed site on Monday (July 12).

Masing, who is also Sarawak Infrastructure and Ports Development Minister, said his ministry was now designing the road access to the site, and temporary buildings were also in the progress of setting-up.

“Construction of the TM1 is urgent as the Indonesian capital will move to Kalimantan in six years’ time, with about three million (population) moving over.

“This area is only 450km from the Indonesian capital,” said the Sarawak Border Security Committee chairman.

Accompanying Masing were Hulu Rajang MP Datuk Wilson Ugak Kumbong, Sarawak PGA commander SAC Mancha Ata, Kapit District Council secretary Jabang Juntan, deputy Kapit Resident Galong Luang, Bukit Mabong district officer Douglas Pungga, representatives from the Public Works Department, Land and Survey Department, and others.
