The Public Works Department is housed in an imposing colonial building with a grand entrance, tall compound walls, arched windows, and ironwork on windows and balconies. On this location, there was the Hotel de la Monnaie, built between 1736 and 1738 and destroyed in 1761. The building rebuilt in 1766 was used in 1884 as the Bibliotheque Publique and Bureau des Ponts et Chaussees. Since 1954, the building has hosted the Bureau des Travaux Publics (Public Works Department) and has been carrying out Planning, Designing, Construction and Maintenance of Buildings, Roads, Bridges, National Highways, Irrigation, Flood Control, Water Supply and Public Health Engineering in all the four regions of Pondicherry: Puducherry, Karaikal, Mahe, and Yanam
