Transition to the planned development period during 1960's created some obligations to the public utilities, as well as to MTA. Then MTA established a Plan-Project Division connected directly to the General Directorate to fulfill duties and responsibilities related to its occupation. Plan-Project Department was formed in 1969 by combining Plan-Project Division and Research and Development Division . Thus, all the duties related to this subject were assembled in one department.
