(2)Without prejudice to the generality of subsection (1) above, the Executive may enter into and carry into effect agreements with respect to any of the following matters, namely, the construction, maintenance, use and operation of the tramway system, or any part or parts of that system, by any other person, and other matters incidental or subsidiary thereto or consequential thereon, and the defraying of, or the making of contributions towards, the cost of the matters aforesaid by the Executive or any other person.

(3)Any agreement under subsection (2) above may provide (inter alia) for the exercise of the powers of the Executive in respect of the tramway system or any part or parts thereof, and for the transfer to any person of the tramway system or any part or parts thereof together with the rights and obligations of the Executive in relation thereto.

(4)The exercise of the powers of any enactment by any person in pursuance of any sale, lease, charge or disposal under subsection (1) above, or any agreement under subsection (2) above, shall be subject to the same restrictions, liabilities and obligations as would apply under this Act if those powers were exercised by the Executive.
