Change of names

In 1982 the Office of Road Transport and Safety was transferred from the Department of Police and Emergency Services to the Department of Transport.

In 1983, the Department of Transportation and Highway Safety and the Department of Transportation and Traffic Police were transferred to the Department of Transportation. The Office of Transportation and Highway Safety was merged with TRB and MRB to form the Office of Highway Transportation.

In the same year, the CRB was renamed the Road Construction Authority (RCA), removing the confusion that its original name had caused for nearly 70 years.

The last logical step came in 1989 when the RTA and RCA merged to form the Road Corporation, better known to millions of Victorians by its trading name VicRoads.
