then the Department may itself—

(i)remove those works and make good any damage to the road; and

(ii)recover from that person any expenses thereby reasonably incurred by it.

(4) A consent under paragraph (1) may be given by the Department where it is satisfied that the safety or convenience of traffic using the road, or which may be expected to use the road, will not thereby be prejudiced.

(b)requiring the person to whom the consent is given to insure against such risks in connection with the works to which the consent relates as the Department may specify.

(7) The person to whom a consent is issued under this Article in respect of any works shall indemnify the Department against any claim in respect of injury, damage or loss rising out of the carrying out of the works, other than a claim in respect of injury, damage or loss which is attributable to the negligence of the Department.

(8) Any person who—

(a)carries out any works in pursuance of a consent given under paragraph (1); and

(b)fails to comply with any condition subject to which that consent was given,

shall be guilty of an offence and liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding level 3 on the standard scale.
