130Materials, workmanship and standard of reinstatement

(1)An undertaker executing road works shall in reinstating the road comply with such requirements as may be prescribed as to the specification of materials to be used and the standards of workmanship to be observed.

(2)He shall also ensure that the reinstatement conforms to such performance standards as may be prescribed—

(a)in the case of interim reinstatement, until permanent reinstatement is effected, and

(a)so far as an undertaker complies with such a code of practice he shall be taken to comply with his duties under this section; and

(b)a failure in any respect to comply with any such code is evidence of failure in that respect to comply with those duties.

(5)An undertaker who fails to comply with his duties under this section commits an offence and is liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding level 3 on the standard scale.
