Description of this FunctionDescription of this Function
Background

Until 1956 the Country Roads Board (VA 722) was responsible for the construction and maintenance of metropolitan roads and bridges. Following an amendment to the Melbourne and Metropolitan Board of Works Act in 1956 (No.5982) the Melbourne and Metropolitan Board of Works (MMBW) (VA 1007) was vested with responsibility for the construction and maintenance of proclaimed metropolitan bridges and main highways. From 1973 to 1974 the MMBW was responsible to the Minister for Planning in the exercise of this function. In July 1974 the Minister for Transport (VRG 49) and the Country Roads Board resumed responsibility for such roads and bridges under the provisions of the Metropolitan Bridges Highways and Foreshores Act 1974. This Act and its successor Act (the Transport Act 1983) returned the exercise of the function to the Country Roads Board and its successor agencies.
