It is now called an AVENUE of the Magistrates Court. The term “division” is quite old as Daniel Andrews in Victoria wanted to streamline the fines process.

Look at the dictionary definition:

noun
1.
a wide street or main thoroughfare.
2.
a means of access or attainment:
avenues of escape; avenues to greater power.

3.
a way or means of entering into or approaching a place:
the various avenues to India.

I am not sure if this makes any difference. But we can clearly see the intent.
