The ministry was founded in 1877 as the Ministry of Public Benefits at the time of Naseredin Shah. The ministry was responsible for roads and bridge construction as well as their maintenance. After the formation of General Bureau of Roads in 1922, it was renamed as Ministry of Ways by a Parliamentary law in 1929. Later in 1936 Parliament passed a law to call it the Ministry of Roads, and again on July 6, 1974 it was renamed as Ministry of Roads and Transport.
