February 26, 2010 Leave a comment
We’re online! With a click of the mouse, Minister of Transport and Works, John Boyce, officially launched the ministry’s website (www.mtw.gov.bb) earlier this week before a gathering of the ministry’s senior officials.
In his brief address, Minister Boyce expressed his excitement at the new website. He sees this new initiative as a great method of accessing the public and a useful way of getting their projects out to them.
Permanent Secretary, Lionel Nurse, in his remarks, also reminded those gathered that the website is part of the ministry’s ongoing customer service programme. This programme also includes a hotline as well as monthly public interactive meetings with the minister. He added the new website gives the public an idea of the ministry’s mandate and is a way in which to market the ministry.
The website is aimed at improving relations with the public and as such, offers a feedback option where the public can offer suggestions and make comments on the initiatives.
The website, which seeks to make the public aware of the ministry’s projects and services, offers an insight into the work of the Transport and Works Ministry. It also offers a number of application forms from the Barbados Licensing Authority to make interaction with that office more effective. The website also breaks down the departments of the ministry and gives weekly updates on road work activity throughout the island. The website will be updated weekly with more information on road work projects and road safety educational information.
The public is encouraged to visit the Ministry of Transport and Works’ website at http://www.mtw.gov.bb.
