Whole provisions yet to be inserted into this Order (including any effects on those provisions):

Concession agreementsF1N.I.

23.—(1) In this Part a “concession agreement” means an agreement entered into by the Department under which a person (the “concessionaire”), in return for undertaking such obligations as may be specified in the agreement with respect to the design, construction, maintenance, operation or improvement of a special road, is appointed to enjoy the right (conferred or to be conferred by a toll order under this Part) to charge tolls in respect of the use of the road.

References in this Part to a concession agreement are to the agreement as varied or supplemented from time to time.

(2) Except as otherwise expressly provided by any of the following provisions of this Part, the provisions of this Order apply in relation to a special road in relation to which a concession agreement is in force (referred to in this Part as a “road subject to a concession”) as in relation to any other special road.

(3) A concession agreement shall provide that any land held by the concessionaire which in the opinion of the Department is required, in connection with the matters provided for in the agreement, for any purpose for which the Department may acquire land under Part IX shall be transferred to the Department without payment.

(4) A concession agreement relating to the design and construction of a special road shall provide that if a designation order is not made in respect of the road or the Department decides not to proceed with the proposed road, the Department shall pay to the concessionaire such compensation in respect of costs incurred by him as may be determined in accordance with the agreement.

(5) A concession agreement relating to the design and construction of a special road shall provide that if the concessionaire fails to complete the road in accordance with the agreement, he shall, without prejudice to any other liability, pay to the Department such compensation as may be determined in accordance with the agreement in respect of costs incurred by the Department.

Those costs shall be taken to include the relevant administrative expenses of the Department, including an appropriate sum in respect of general staff costs and overheads.

(6) Nothing in this Part shall be construed as restricting the powers of the Department with respect to a road subject to a concession—

(a)as to the matters which may be provided for in the concession agreement or as to the making of agreements of any other description for any purpose connected with the special road; or

(b)as to the acquisition, by agreement or compulsorily, of any land which in the opinion of the Department is required, in connection with the road, for any purpose for which the Department may acquire land under Part IX.

(7) Nothing in a concession agreement shall be construed as affecting the status of the road subject to the concession as a public road maintainable by the Department.
