The Metropolitan Board of Works (MBW) was the principal instrument of London-wide government from December 1855 until the establishment of the London County Council in March 1889. Its principal responsibility was to provide infrastructure to cope with London's rapid growth, which it accomplished with varying degrees of success. The MBW was an appointed rather than elected body. This lack of accountability made it unpopular with Londoners, especially in its latter years when it fell prey to corruption.

  • Metropolitan Board of Works (MBW) byl hlavní správní institucí Londýna od roku 1855 do ustavení správní organizace hrabství Londýn - rady hrabství Londýn v roce 1889. Jeho hlavním úkolem bylo zajistit infrastrukturu pro rychle se rozvíjející Londýn. (cs)
  • Der Metropolitan Board of Works (MBW; deutsch Großstädtischer Ausschuss für öffentliche Bauten) war ein Zweckverband in London, der von 1855 bis 1889 existierte. Hauptaufgabe des MBW war es, in dem damals in viele eigenständige Gemeinden zersplitterten Ballungsraum Infrastrukturbauten zentral zu planen und zu bauen, um mit dem raschen Wachstum Schritt halten zu können. Die Vertreter des MBW wurden nicht gewählt, sondern ernannt. Die dadurch fehlende Transparenz war die Hauptursache für die in der Spätphase um sich greifende Korruption und den Ersatz des MBW durch den London County Council. (de)
  • Le Metropolitan Board of Works (MBW) fut l'organisme principal chargé d'administrer la ville de Londres de 1855 jusqu'à la fondation du London County Council en 1889. Sa principale responsabilité était de veiller à l'infrastructure nécessaire à la croissance rapide de Londres. Les membres étaient nommés et non élus. Cet organisme n'était donc pas redevable, ce qui le rendit impopulaire aux yeux de la population, surtout dans les dernières années, à cause de scandales de corruption politique. L'architecte William Tite (1798-1873) en fut un des présidents. (fr)
