In 2001, Tielaitos was divided into Tiehallinto (Public Roads Administration) responsible for planning and administration of public roads and Tieliikelaitos (currently Destia), which is a government owned road construction and maintenance contractor. In 2009 Tiehallinto became the Tieosasto (Public Roads Department) of the Liikennevirasto (Finnish Transport Agency), which has the overall responsibility for administration of all means of transportation.
