Ministry of Transport moves from TCD offices
The Ministry of Tourism, Transport and Municipalities will this week temporarily move its offices to Victoria Street, opening up space at the Transport Control Department.
According to a statement, the ministry will open for business at 61-63 Victoria Street on Wednesday after moving from its location on North Street.
“The substantial space at TCD is surplus to ministry requirements,” the statement said. “The move is a continued effort to increase efficiencies of the ministry headquarters and frees up much-needed space for the Transport Control Department.
“Given the roles and responsibilities of ministry officials, there is a necessity for regular meetings with entities such as the Gaming Commission, the Bermuda Tourism Authority, municipalities and the aviation and shipping agencies. Therefore a more central location is useful.”
The statement added that the Ministry has assumed responsibilities for lottery and raffle permits under The Lotteries Act 1944 and that applications for permits can be delivered to the ministry's new office.
