By on 2:37 AM

Tulang Bawang Regency is now divided into four regencies due to its too vast area to control. The two new regencies are Mesuji Regency and West Tulang Bawang Regency. These two regencies have officially been determined based on the legislation No.50, Year 2008.

After its area has been broken into four regencies, Tulang Bawang Regency now has an area of only ± 4385.84 km2, distributed in 15 District Governments, 4 and 148 Villages. Its current population is predicted to be more or less 860,854 people

Tulang Bawang Regency is only 120 km from Bandar Lampung or approximately 2 hours by car.

In Menggala, the capital city of Tulang Bawang Regency, there have been few developments simply because of its residents being reluctant to keep up with current changes. No wonder if business centers are not located there in the capital city of Menggala.
