Minister of Public Works and Transportation Tolga Atakan announced on Monday, 22nd October, that the new building of the “Parcel Post” unit, which was operating in the Yenişehir area of Lefkoşa, was ready. Atakan said the parcel post system was being revised, with parcel post units in Girne and Gazimağusa being next in line within this scheme.
The unit in question will resume its service tomorrow (23.10.2018) under the name “Bakanlıklar Bölgesi Paket Postanesi (Area of Ministries Parcel Post Office)” at the former building of the Car Registration, Inspection and Licensing Branch, which is situated to the north of the former Cyprus Turkish Airlines building on Bedrettin Demirel Caddesi, Lefkoşa.
In his social media post with regard to the issue, Minister Atakan said, “The ‘Parcel Post’ service in Yenişehir which had been operating under unsatisfactory physical conditions, is counting the days to start giving a modern and up to date service at the former building of the car registry department. The existing infrastructure is being renewed for a faster and more secure service. Delays and lost post will be minimised. This will be followed by a modernisation at the Girne and Mağusa parcel post offices.
Preparations at the new building of the parcel post continued for seven weeks. The new building contains signs in English. The unit will only be providing service for parcel post. Package post, stamp sales and money transfer services will be possible in the future.
