Defence Ministry has plans for Sg Besi airport

Though Defence Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi denied his ministry has plans to redevelop Sungai Besi airport, City Hall confirmed receiving a proposal for works at the site.

Details so far are still sketchy.

Mayor Ahmad Fuad Ismail told The Malay Mail that City Hall called for a meeting with representatives from the Defence Ministry, Federal Land and Mines Department and the Public Private Partnership Unit (UKAS) which comes under the Prime Minister’s Department, a couple of months ago. There were talks for the area to be redeveloped.

“We have not seen or received details on the type of redevelopment in store and no development application has been made so far. But yes, I can confirm there was a proposal for it.”

He said only the Defence Ministry is privy to what plans it has for the area.
