Traffic Commissioner's Caernarfon Office Officially Opens
The Traffic Commissioner for Wales, Victoria Davies, now has a base in both North and South Wales following the official opening of the North Wales office in Caernarfon recently.
The office, based in Gwynedd Council’s existing Penrallt building, is shared with a small team of bilingual staff working for the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency and will provide facilities for the Commissioner to hold meetings and inquiries in North Wales.
Ken Skates, Minister for Minister for Economy, Transport and North Wales, who officially opened the office, said, “I am extremely pleased to see that the Traffic Commissioner now has an office in Caernarfon as well as in Cardiff. This ensures that the Traffic Commissioner is within easy reach to the whole of Wales.
“It’s good to see local bilingual staff working here. It benefits the local economy and also allows people to contact the Traffic Commissioner’s office in their preferred language.
“This is the result of collaboration and co-operation between Welsh Government, Gwynedd Council and the office of the Traffic Commissioner, and shows what can be achieved when public bodies work together.”
Victoria Davies said, “As the new Traffic Commissioner for Wales, I’m looking forward to working with OTC staff and key transport stakeholders to promote road safety and fair competition throughout Wales.
“The opening of the new OTC office in Caernarfon will enhance our ability to provide a bilingual service to the people of Wales.”
