Changing names

In 1982 the Road Safety and Traffic Authority was moved from the Ministry of Police and Emergency Services to the Ministry of Transport.

In 1983 the Road Safety and Traffic Authority was combined with the TRB and MRB to become the Road Traffic Authority.

The same year, the CRB changed its name to the Road Construction Authority (RCA), thereby eliminating the confusion its original name had caused for nearly 70 years!

The final logical step came in 1989 when the RTA and RCA were merged to become the Road Corporation - better known to millions of Victorians by its trading name - VicRoads.
