1933 The Department of Scientific and Industrial Research appointed the Road Research Board to advise on the conduct of road research by the department and, in particular, to prepare and submit an initial programme of research and thereafter annually a programme of work for the Road Research Laboratory

1965 responsibility for road research was returned to the Ministry of Transport; the Road Research Laboratory was brought under the ministry's control, and the board and its committees were dissolved and replaced by an advisory Road Research Council.
