Road traffic regulation

10(1)Subject to sub-paragraph (2) below, any power under the [1984 c. 27.] Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 to make an order or to give a direction with respect to any road shall be exercisable in relation to any road forming or forming part of any of the works authorised by this Act before that road is open for public use, in any case where it appears to the Secretary of State to be expedient that the order or direction should have effect immediately on the road’s becoming open for public use.

(2)The procedure otherwise applicable under that Act in relation to the making of any such order or the giving of any such direction shall apply in any such case with such modifications as the Secretary of State may determine; and he shall publish notice of those modifications in such manner as appears to him to be appropriate for bringing them to the notice of persons likely to be affected by the provisions of any such order or by any such direction.

11(1)In order to facilitate the reconstruction of the bridges carrying the A226 (The Brent) and the B2200 (Watling Street) over the A282 (part of Work No. 5) the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 shall have effect in relation to so much of The Brent and Watling Street as lies between the junction of those two roads and the junction of each of them with Lingfield Avenue (including the junctions themselves) and Lingfield Avenue during the relevant period as if they were trunk roads.

(2)The Secretary of State shall certify the date on which the reconstruction of those bridges has been completed to his satisfaction and the relevant period is the period beginning on the transfer date and ending on the date so certified.
