Along with continuing the large-scale reconstruction of the adjacent Riga Motor Museum, construction of the Customer service centre of the Road Traffic Safety Directorate (CSDD) on the right bank of the River Daugava has been officially started with the laying of the foundation stone.

The CSDD Customer service centre on the right bank of the River Daugava will be analogous to the current centre at Bauskas Street and it is planned to be made as the leading place of the Directorate Register as was specified by Chairman of the Board of the Directorate Andris Lukstins (Andris Lukstiņš). He admitted that due to several new functions the place in the premises on Bauskas and Miera Streets is becoming too small for the Directorate.

The necessity for the construction of a new customer service centre and reconstruction of the building of the Riga Motor Museum built in Soviet times was also emphasised by Minister of Transport Anrijs Matiss (Anrijs Matīss).

By taking part in laying the foundation stone, Chairman of the Board of "Skonto Būve" Guntis Ravis (Guntis Rāvis) pointed out that the project will be completed on time and in good quality and acknowledged that it is interesting to construct the centre due to the original finish of the facade.

The area of the building of the Riga Motor Museum to be reconstructed is 7700 m2, and the construction project – 3000 m2. It is planned that the construction works will be completed in summer next year and the Museum will open its doors for visitors in the second half of 2014.
