The Traffic Commissioner for Wales now has a base in both North and South Wales following the official opening of an office in Caernarfon.
The office, based in Gwynedd Council’s existing Penrallt building, is shared with a small team of bilingual staff working for the DVSA and will provide facilities for the TC to hold meetings and inquiries in North Wales.
The opening of the office means TC Victoria Davies can now work in Caernarfon as well as Cardiff and ensures that she is within easy reach to the whole of Wales.
Minister for North Wales Ken Skates said having bilingual staff working in the office would benefit the whole economy and also allow operators to contact the TC in their preferred language.
TC 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.”
Davies took up her role as TC for Wales in February, replacing Nick Jones who was retiring.
She has previously worked as a senior lawyer managing the transport team for the Welsh government, as well as at the Department for Transport as a senior advisory lawyer for various divisions.
