History

The Transport Co-ordination Act of 1986 repealed the earlier State Transport Co-ordination Act and Transport Commission Act and amalgamated the offices of Co-ordinator General of Transport and the Transport Commission to form the Department of Transport [2].

On 6 August 2001, the following functions were transferred to the newly established Department of Planning and Infrastructure: Policies and Plans, Passenger and Freight Services, and Infrastructure Development and Management.

The Department of Transport then operated in a reduced environment, with only activities relating to Education and Regulation - essentially, Licensing Services and the Office of Road Safety - falling within its jurisdiction.

The Road Safety Council Bill 2001 completed its passage through State Parliament on 22 May 2002, giving the Road Safety Council its own legislation, which enabled the Office of Road Safety to transfer to the Department of the Premier and Cabinet.

The Machinery of Government (Planning and Infrastructure) Amendment Bill 2001 completed its passage through Parliament on 12 June 2002. This Bill enabled the Transport Co-ordination Act 1966 to be brought into the Planning and Infrastructure portfolio, and allowed for the abolition of the Department of Transport.

Both Bills became effective on 1 July 2002. As a result, the process for abolishing the Department of Transport began and the licensing functions undertaken by Transport were transferred to the Department for Planning and Infrastructure on 1 July that same year.
