(9)Any dispute with a highway authority about consent under sub-paragraph (5) shall, if the parties agree, be referred to arbitration, but shall otherwise be determined by the Secretary of State.

(10)It is hereby declared for the avoidance of doubt that there is no need to reinstate a highway or part of a highway in relation to which any of the powers conferred by sub-paragraph (1) has been exercised where the exercise of the power comes to an end on the exercise, in relation to the highway or part, of the power conferred by paragraph 1(1) or 2(1).

Working sites in highways

6Any highway or part of a highway which is stopped up under paragraph 5(1)(a) may be used as a working site if it is within the limits of deviation for the scheduled works or within the limits of land to be acquired or used.

(b)they are works which, had they been executed under the powers of the highway authority, might have been carried out in exercise of the powers conferred by section 64 (dual carriageways and roundabouts) or 184 (vehicle crossings over footways and verges) of the Highways Act 1980 (c. 66).

(2)This sub-paragraph applies to any works executed under this Act in relation to a highway which consists of or includes a carriageway, other than those executed under power delegated to a highway authority by an agreement under paragraph 14(2) below.

and after the end of that period shall be maintained by and at the expense of the highway authority.

(3)Where in relation to a highway to which sub-paragraph (2) applies the highway authority is satisfied that the highway is practically complete or is open for public use, it shall, at the request of the nominated undertaker, certify to it in writing the date of practical completion of the highway or, as the case may be, the date on which it was first open for public use.

(4)If the highway authority refuses a request to issue a certificate under sub-paragraph (3), or if the nominated undertaker disputes the date given in a certificate under that sub-paragraph, the matter shall, if the parties agree, be referred to arbitration, but shall otherwise be determined by the Secretary of State.

(5)For the purposes of sub-paragraph (2), the date of practical completion of a highway, or the date on which it is first open for public use, shall be taken to be—

(b)any alteration of the existing highway, and

(c)any other related matters.

(2)The nominated undertaker may, by agreement with any such persons, delegate to them the power of constructing any such new highway or any such alteration of an existing highway, including any bridge over any railway, and, where the nominated undertaker is responsible for maintaining the new or altered highway (or bridge), the power to maintain it.

Use of subsoil

15(1)The nominated undertaker may enter upon, take and use for the purposes of the works authorised by this Act so much of the subsoil of any highway within the limits of deviation for the scheduled works or within the limits of land to be acquired or used as shall be required for the purpose of the construction or maintenance of those works, without being required to acquire that subsoil or any interest in it.

(2)For section 7 of the Compulsory Purchase Act 1965 there shall be substituted—

7Measure of compensation in case of purchase of new right

In assessing the compensation to be paid by the acquiring authority under this Act, regard shall be had, not only to the extent (if any) to which the value of the land over which the right is purchased is depreciated by the acquisition of the right, but also to the damage (if any) to be sustained by the owner of the land by reason of its severance from other land of his, or injuriously affecting that other land by the exercise of the powers conferred by this or the special Act.

(3)In section 8 of that Act (provisions as to divided land) for subsection (1) there shall be substituted—

(1)This subsection applies where—

(a)a notice to treat in respect of a right over land consisting of a house, building or manufactory or of a park or garden belonging to a house (“the relevant land”) has been served on a person under section 5 of this Act,

(b)in consequence of the service of the notice, a question of disputed compensation in respect of the purchase of the right would, apart from this section, fall to be determined by the Lands Tribunal, and

(c)before the Lands Tribunal have determined that question, the person on whom the notice has been served satisfies them that the relevant conditions are met.

(1A)The relevant conditions are—

(a)that he has an interest which he is able and willing to sell in the whole of the relevant land;

(b)where the relevant land consists of a house, building or manufactory, that it cannot be made subject to the right without material detriment to it; and

(c)where the relevant land consists of a park or garden belonging to a house, that it cannot be made subject to the right without seriously affecting the amenity or convenience of the house.

(1B)Where subsection (1) above applies—

(a)the compulsory purchase order shall, in relation to the person on whom the notice to treat has been served—

(i)cease to authorise the purchase of the right to which the notice relates, and

(ii)be deemed to authorise the purchase of that person’s interest in the whole of the relevant land including, where the land consists of a park or garden belonging to a house, the house, and

(b)the notice to treat shall be deemed to have been served in respect of that interest on such date as the Lands Tribunal direct.

(1C)Any question as to the extent of the land in which the compulsory purchase order is deemed to authorise the purchase of an interest by virtue of subsection (1B)(a)(ii) of this section shall be determined by the Lands Tribunal.

(1D)Where the Lands Tribunal determine that the person on whom a notice to treat has been served has satisfied them as mentioned in subsection (1)(c) of this section, the acquiring authority may withdraw the notice at any time within the period of six weeks beginning with the date of the determination.

(1E)Subsection (1D) of this section is without prejudice to any other power of the acquiring authority to withdraw the notice to treat.

(4)The following provisions of that Act (which state the effect of a deed poll executed in various circumstances where there is no conveyance by persons with interests in the land), namely—

  • section 9(4) (failure of owners to convey),

  • paragraph 10(3) of Schedule 1 (owners under incapacity),

  • paragraph 2(3) of Schedule 2 (absent and untraced owners), and

  • paragraphs 2(3) and 7(2) of Schedule 4 (common land),

shall be so modified as to secure that, as against persons with interests in the land which are expressed to be overridden by the deed, the right which is to be purchased compulsorily is vested absolutely in the acquiring authority.

(5)Section 11 of that Act (powers of entry) shall be so modified as to secure that, as from the date on which the acquiring authority have served notice to treat in respect of any right, they have power, exercisable in the like circumstances and subject to the like conditions, to enter for the purpose of exercising that right (which shall be deemed for this purpose to have been created on the date of service of the notice); and sections 12 (penalty for unauthorised entry) and 13 (entry on enforcement officer’s or sheriff’s warrant in the event of obstruction) of that Act shall be modified correspondingly.

(6)Section 20 of that Act (compensation for short term tenants) shall apply with the modifications necessary to secure that persons with such interests in land as are mentioned in that section are compensated in a manner corresponding to that in which they would be compensated on a compulsory acquisition of the land, but taking into account only the extent (if any) of such interference with such interests as is actually caused, or likely to be caused, by the exercise of the right in question.

(7)Section 22 of that Act (protection of acquiring authority’s possession of land where interest accidentally omitted from purchase) shall be so modified as to enable the acquiring authority, in circumstances corresponding to those referred to in that section, to continue to be entitled to exercise the right acquired, subject to compliance with that section as respects compensation.

(8)References in that Act to land are, in appropriate contexts, to be read (according to the requirements of the particular context) as referring to, or as including references to—

(a)the right acquired or to be acquired, or

(b)the land over which the right is, or is to be, exercisable.

(9)In the Land Compensation Act 1973 (c. 26), for section 44 there shall be substituted—

44Compensation for injurious affection

(1)Where a right over land is purchased from any person for the purpose of works which are to be situated partly on that land and partly elsewhere, compensation for injurious affection of land retained by that person shall be assessed by reference to the whole of the works and not only the part situated on the land over which the right is exercisable.

(2)In this section, “compensation for injurious affection” means compensation for injurious affection under section 7 or 20 of the Compulsory Purchase Act 1965 as applied by paragraph 6(2) of Schedule 6 to the Crossrail Act 2008.

(10)For section 58 of that Act there shall be substituted—

58Determination of material detriment where right over part of house etc. proposed for compulsory acquisition

(1)Subsection (2) applies where the Lands Tribunal is determining under section 8(1)(c) of the Compulsory Purchase Act 1965, as applied by paragraph 6(2) of Schedule 6 to the Crossrail Act 2008, whether—

(a)a right over part of a house, building or manufactory can be taken without material detriment to the house, building or manufactory, or

(b)a right over part of a park or garden belonging to a house can be taken without seriously affecting the amenity or convenience of the house.

(2)The Tribunal shall take into account, not only the effect of the right on the whole of the house, building or manufactory or of the house and the park or garden, but also the use to be made of the rights proposed to be acquired and, in a case where the right is proposed to be acquired for works or other purposes extending to other land, the effect of the whole of the works and the use to be made of the other land.

Limitation of power of acquisition to rights only

8In the case of land specified in the following table, the power conferred by section 6(1) shall be exercisable only in relation to the creation and acquisition of easements or other rights over land for the passage of persons or vehicles (with or without materials, plant and machinery) for the purpose of or in connection with the construction or maintenance of the works authorised by this Act.

Extension of power to acquire new rights

13(1)The Secretary of State may by order provide that section 6(1), so far as relating to acquisition by virtue of paragraph 6(1), shall be treated as also authorising acquisition by such person as may be specified in the order.

(2)The power to make an order under sub-paragraph (1) includes power to make an order varying or revoking any order previously made under that provision.

Acquisition of part only of certain properties

14(1)Where—

(a)a notice to treat under Part 1 of the Compulsory Purchase Act 1965, as applied to the acquisition of land under section 6(1), is served in respect of land forming part only of a house, building or manufactory or part only of land consisting of a house with a park or garden, and

(b)a copy of this paragraph is served with the notice to treat,

the following provisions of this paragraph, with paragraphs 15 and 16, shall apply instead of section 8(1) of the Compulsory Purchase Act 1965.

(2)The person on whom the notice to treat is served (“the owner”) may within the period of 21 days beginning with the day on which the notice to treat is served on him, serve on the Secretary of State a counter-notice objecting to the sale of the part (“the land subject to the notice to treat”) and stating that he is willing and able to sell the whole (“the land subject to the counter-notice”).

(3)If no counter-notice is served under sub-paragraph (2), the owner shall be required to sell the land subject to the notice to treat.

(4)If a counter-notice is served under sub-paragraph (2) and the Secretary of State agrees to take the land subject to the counter-notice, the notice to treat shall be deemed to be a notice to treat in addition for the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice.

(5)If a counter-notice is served under sub-paragraph (2) and the Secretary of State does not agree to take the land subject to the counter-notice, the question as to what land the owner is to be required to sell shall be referred to the Lands Tribunal.

15(1)If, on a reference under paragraph 14(5), the Lands Tribunal determine that the land subject to the notice to treat can be taken—

(a)without material detriment to the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice, and

(b)where the land subject to the notice to treat consists of or includes garden only land, without seriously affecting the amenity and convenience of the house to which the garden only land belongs,

the owner shall be required to sell the land subject to the notice to treat.

(2)If, on such a reference, the Lands Tribunal determine that only part of the land subject to the notice to treat can be taken as mentioned in sub-paragraph (1), the notice to treat shall, subject to sub-paragraph (3), be deemed to be a notice to treat for that part.

(3)Where the land subject to the notice to treat is not land which consists of or includes garden only land, sub-paragraph (2) shall only have effect to deem the notice to treat to be a notice to treat for land which does consist of or include garden only land if the Lands Tribunal determine that that land can be taken without seriously affecting the amenity and convenience of the house to which the garden only land belongs.

(4)If, on such a reference, the Lands Tribunal determine—

(a)that none of the land subject to the notice to treat can be taken without material detriment to the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice, but

(b)that the material detriment is confined to part of the remainder of that land,

then, except where sub-paragraph (5) applies, the notice to treat shall be deemed to be a notice to treat in addition for the land to which the material detriment is confined.

(5)If, in a case where the land subject to the notice to treat consists of or includes garden only land, the Lands Tribunal determine on such a reference that none of the land subject to the notice to treat can be taken without seriously affecting the amenity or convenience of the house to which the garden only land belongs, the notice to treat shall be deemed to be a notice to treat in addition for the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice.

(6)If, on such a reference, the Lands Tribunal determine—

(a)that none of the land subject to the notice to treat can be taken without material detriment to the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice, and

(b)that the material detriment is not confined to part of the remainder of that land,

the notice to treat shall be deemed to be a notice to treat in addition for the remainder of the land subject to the counter-notice.

(7)For the purposes of this paragraph, the land subject to the notice to treat consists of or includes garden only land if—

(a)it consists of the whole or part of a park or garden belonging to a house, or

(b)it includes the whole or part of such a park or garden but does not include the house or any part of it.

16(1)Where under paragraph 15 a notice to treat is deemed by virtue of a determination of the Lands Tribunal to be a notice to treat for less land or more land than that specified in the notice, the Secretary of State may, within the period of 6 weeks beginning with the day on which the determination is made, withdraw the notice.

(2)If the Secretary of State withdraws a notice to treat under sub-paragraph (1), he shall pay the person on whom the notice was served compensation for any loss or expense occasioned to that person by the giving and withdrawal of the notice, such compensation to be determined in case of dispute by the Lands Tribunal.

(3)Where under paragraph 14 or 15 a person is required to sell part only of a house, building or manufactory or of land consisting of a house with a park or garden, the Secretary of State shall pay him compensation for any loss sustained by him due to the severance of that part in addition to the value of the interest acquired.

(4)A notice to treat shall have the effect which it is deemed to have under paragraph 14(4) or 15(4), (5) or (6) whether or not the additional land is, apart from that provision, land which the Secretary of State is authorised to acquire compulsorily under this Act.

8Any officer of the highway authority duly appointed for the purpose may at all reasonable times, on giving to the nominated undertaker such notice as may in the circumstances be reasonable, enter upon and inspect any part of the works authorised by this Act which—

(a)is in, over or under any highway, or

(b)which may affect any highway or any property of the highway authority,

during the carrying out of the work, and the nominated undertaker shall give to such officer all reasonable facilities for such inspection and, if he shall be of the opinion that the construction of the work is attended with danger to any highway or to any property of the highway authority on or under any highway, the nominated undertaker shall adopt such measures and precautions as may be reasonably practicable for the purpose of preventing any damage or injury to the highway.

9(1)The nominated undertaker shall not alter, disturb or in any way interfere with any property of the highway authority on or under any highway, or the access thereto, without the consent of the highway authority, and any alteration, diversion, replacement or reconstruction of any such property which may be necessary shall be made by the highway authority or the nominated undertaker as the highway authority thinks fit, and the expense reasonably incurred by the highway authority in so doing shall be repaid to the highway authority by the nominated undertaker.

(2)If within 28 days after a request for consent has been submitted the highway authority has not given or refused such consent, it shall be deemed to have consented to the request as submitted.

10The nominated undertaker shall not remove any soil or material from any highway except so much as must be excavated in the carrying out of the works authorised by this Act.

11(1)If the highway authority, after giving to the nominated undertaker not less than 28 days' notice (or, in case of emergency, such notice as is reasonably practicable) of its intention to do so, incurs any additional expense in the signposting of traffic diversions or the taking of other measures in relation thereto, or in the repair of any highway by reason of the diversion thereto of traffic from a road of a higher standard, in consequence of the construction of the works authorised by this Act, the nominated undertaker shall repay to the highway authority the amount of any such expense reasonably so incurred.

(2)An amount which apart from this sub-paragraph would be payable to the highway authority by virtue of this paragraph in respect of the repair of any highway shall, if the highway fell or would have fallen due for repair as part of the maintenance programme of the highway authority at any time within ten years of the repair being carried out by the nominated undertaker, so as to confer on the highway authority financial benefit (whether by securing the completion of overdue maintenance work for which the highway authority is liable or by deferment of the time for such work in the ordinary course), be reduced by the amount which represents that benefit.

12(1)The nominated undertaker shall not, except with the consent of the highway authority, deposit any soil or materials, or stand any plant, on or over any highway so as to obstruct or render less safe the use of the highway by any person, or, except with the like consent, deposit any soil or materials on any highway outside a hoarding, but if within 28 days after request for it any such consent is neither given nor refused it shall be deemed to have been given.

(2)The expense reasonably incurred by the highway authority in removing any soil or materials deposited on any highway in contravention of this paragraph shall be repaid to the highway authority by the nominated undertaker.

13The nominated undertaker shall not, except with the consent of the highway authority, erect or retain on or over a highway to which the public continues to have access any scaffolding or other structure which obstructs the highway, unless the structure comprises screening which has been approved under Schedule 7, but if within 28 days after a request for it such consent is neither given nor refused it shall be deemed to have been given.

14The nominated undertaker shall, if reasonably so required by the highway authority, provide and maintain to the reasonable satisfaction of the highway authority, during such time as the nominated undertaker may occupy any part of a highway for the purpose of the construction of any part of the works authorised by this Act, temporary bridges and temporary ramps for vehicular or pedestrian traffic over any part of the works or in such other position as may be necessary to prevent undue interference with the flow of traffic in the highway.

15(1)Where any part of any highway has been broken up or disturbed by the nominated undertaker and not permanently stopped up or diverted, the nominated undertaker shall make good the subsoil, foundations and surface of that part of the highway to the reasonable satisfaction of the highway authority, and shall maintain the same to the reasonable satisfaction of the highway authority for such time as may reasonably be required for the permanent reinstatement of the highway.

(2)The reinstatement of that part of the highway shall be carried out by the nominated undertaker to the reasonable satisfaction of the highway authority in accordance with such requirements as to specification of material and standards of workmanship as may be prescribed for equivalent reinstatement work by regulations made under section 71 of the New Roads and Street Works Act 1991 (c. 22).

16If any damage to any highway or any property of the highway authority on or under any highway is caused by, or results from, the construction of any work authorised by this Act or any act or omission of the nominated undertaker, its contractors, agents or employees whilst engaged upon such work, the nominated undertaker may, in the case of damage to a highway, make good such damage to the reasonable satisfaction of the highway authority and, where the nominated undertaker does not make good, or in the case of damage to property of the highway authority, the nominated undertaker shall make compensation to the highway authority.

17The fact that any act or thing may have been done in accordance with plans approved by the highway authority shall not (if it was not attributable to the act, neglect or default of the highway authority or of any person in its employ or its contractors or agents) exonerate the nominated undertaker from any liability, or affect any claim for damages, under this Part or otherwise.

18(1)Any dispute arising between the nominated undertaker and the highway authority under this Part shall be determined by arbitration if—

(a)the parties agree, or

(b)the dispute relates to the amount of any sum payable under this Part,

but shall otherwise by determined by a person appointed by the Secretary of State.

(2)Subject to sub-paragraph (3), the nominated undertaker or the Secretary of State shall afford the undertakers the requisite facilities and rights for the construction of any necessary alternative apparatus in other land which is available for the purpose and which is held or used, or intended for use, by the nominated undertaker for the purposes of its undertaking under this Act or held by the Secretary of State, or in which either of them has sufficient rights or interests and thereafter for the maintenance, repair, renewal and inspection of such apparatus.

(3)Sub-paragraph (4) applies where facilities and rights required for the construction of apparatus under sub-paragraph (2) are to be afforded elsewhere than in such other land and neither the nominated undertaker nor the Secretary of State is able to afford such facilities and rights.

(4)The undertakers shall, on receipt of a written notice from the nominated undertaker that this sub-paragraph applies, forthwith use their best endeavours to obtain the necessary facilities and rights; and neither the nominated undertaker nor the Secretary of State shall be under an obligation as to the provision of such facilities and rights in the other land.

4(1)Any alternative apparatus to be constructed by the undertakers in pursuance of paragraph 3 in land held or used, or intended for use, by the nominated undertaker for the purposes of its undertaking under this Act or held by the Secretary of State, or in which the undertakers have obtained the necessary facilities and rights, shall be constructed in such manner, and in such line or situation and in accordance with such programme, as is—

(a)agreed between the undertakers and the nominated undertaker with a view to securing, among other things, the efficient implementation of the necessary work, the avoidance of unnecessary delay and the continued fulfilment by the undertakers of their service obligations to a standard no less than that achieved prior to the removal of the apparatus which the alternative apparatus replaces, or

(2)If the undertakers fail to comply with an agreement made under sub-paragraph (1), or with a determination under paragraph 13, they shall be liable to compensate the nominated undertaker in respect of any loss or damage (other than loss of, or arising from delayed receipt of, operating revenue due to delayed opening of Crossrail) directly resulting from the failure.

5(1)The undertakers shall, after—

(a)the manner of construction and the line and situation of any necessary alternative apparatus have been agreed or determined as aforesaid, and

(b)any such facilities and rights as are referred to in paragraph 3 have been granted to or obtained by the undertakers, or an undertaking has been given that such facilities or rights will be granted,

proceed with all reasonable despatch to construct and bring into operation the alternative apparatus and to remove any apparatus required by the nominated undertaker to be removed under the provisions of this Part and, in default, the nominated undertaker may remove that apparatus.

(2)Following the removal of that apparatus under the provisions of this Part or abandonment any rights of the undertakers relating to that apparatus in or over the land in which it was or is situated shall be extinguished.

6(1)If the nominated undertaker gives notice in writing to the undertakers that it desires to carry out any part of so much of the work necessary in connection with the construction of the alternative apparatus, or the removal of the apparatus required to be removed, as is or will be situate in any lands held or used, or intended for use, by the nominated undertaker for the purposes of its undertaking under this Act or held by the Secretary of State, such work, instead of being carried out by the undertakers, shall be carried out by the nominated undertaker in accordance with plans and specifications and in a position agreed between the undertakers and the nominated undertaker, or, in default of agreement, determined in accordance with paragraph 13, with all reasonable despatch under the superintendence (if given) and to the reasonable satisfaction of the undertakers.

(b)so far as it may be reasonable and practicable to do so in the circumstances of the case, give effect to the terms and conditions (if any) applicable to the apparatus for which the alternative apparatus is to be substituted and have regard to the undertakers' ability to fulfil their service obligations.

(3)If the facilities and rights to be afforded by the nominated undertaker or the Secretary of State in respect of any alternative apparatus, and the terms and conditions subject to which those facilities and rights are to be granted are, in the opinion of a person making a determination under paragraph 13, more or less favourable on the whole to the undertakers than the facilities, rights, terms and conditions applying to the apparatus to be removed, that person shall make such provision for the payment of compensation to or by the nominated undertaker or the Secretary of State to or by the undertakers in respect of the difference as appears to him to be reasonable having regard to all the circumstances of the case.

8(1)Not less than 28 days before commencing to construct any work authorised by this Act which is near to, or will or may affect, any apparatus the removal of which has not been required by the nominated undertaker under paragraph 3, the nominated undertaker shall submit to the undertakers a plan and description of the work and of any protective measures which the nominated undertaker proposes to take in respect of that apparatus, together with a specification of such measures where appropriate.

(2)The work shall be constructed only in accordance with the plan and description submitted as aforesaid and in accordance with such reasonable requirements as may be made by the undertakers for the alteration or otherwise for the protection of the apparatus or for securing access thereto, and the undertakers shall be entitled by their officer to watch and inspect the construction of the work.

(3)If the undertakers within 14 days after the submission to them of any such plan and description shall, in consequence of the works proposed by the nominated undertaker, reasonably require the removal of any apparatus and give written notice to the nominated undertaker of that requirement, this Part shall have effect as if the removal of such apparatus had been required by the nominated undertaker under paragraph 3.

(4)Nothing in sub-paragraphs (1) to (3) shall preclude the nominated undertaker from submitting at any time, or from time to time, but in no case less than 28 days before commencing the construction of the work, a new plan and description of it in lieu of the plan and description previously submitted, and thereupon the provisions of those sub-paragraphs shall apply to and in respect of the new plan and description.

(5)The nominated undertaker shall not be required to comply with sub-paragraphs (1) to (3) in a case of emergency but in such a case it shall give notice to the undertakers as soon as reasonably practicable and a plan and description of those works as soon as reasonably practicable thereafter, and shall comply with those sub-paragraphs so far as reasonably practicable in the circumstances.

9(1)If in consequence of the exercise of the powers of this Act the access to any apparatus is materially obstructed the nominated undertaker shall, so far as reasonably practicable, provide alternative means of access to such apparatus which is no less convenient than the access enjoyed by the undertakers prior to the obstruction.

(2)The nominated undertaker shall, so far as is reasonably practicable, so exercise its powers under paragraphs 5 and 6 of Schedule 2 as not to obstruct or render less convenient the access to any apparatus.

(3)Notwithstanding the temporary stopping up or diversion of any highway under paragraph 5 of Schedule 3, the undertakers may do all such works and things in any such highway as may be reasonably necessary to enable them to inspect, repair, maintain, renew, remove or use any apparatus which at the time of the stopping up or diversion was in that highway.

10Where, in consequence of this Act, any part of any highway in which any apparatus is situate ceases to be part of a highway, the undertakers may exercise the same rights of access to such apparatus as they enjoyed immediately before the passing of this Act, but nothing in this paragraph shall affect any right of the nominated undertaker or of the undertakers to require removal of that apparatus under this Part or the power of the nominated undertaker to construct works in accordance with paragraph 8.

11(1)Subject to the following provisions of this paragraph, the nominated undertaker shall repay to the undertakers the reasonable expenses incurred by the undertakers in, or in connection with—

(a)the removal and relaying or replacing, alteration or protection of any apparatus or the construction of any new apparatus under any provision of this Part,

(b)the cutting off of any apparatus from any other apparatus in consequence of the exercise by the nominated undertaker of any power under this Act, and

(c)any other work or thing rendered reasonably necessary in consequence of the exercise by the nominated undertaker of any such power.

(3)If in pursuance of the provisions of this Part—

(a)alternative apparatus of better type, or greater capacity or of greater dimensions is placed in substitution for existing apparatus of worse type, of smaller capacity or of smaller dimensions, except where this has been solely due to using the nearest currently available type, or

(b)apparatus (whether existing apparatus or alternative apparatus) is placed at a depth greater than the depth at which the existing apparatus was situated,

and the placing of apparatus of that type or capacity or of those dimensions, or the placing of apparatus at that depth, as the case may be, is not agreed by the nominated undertaker or, in default of agreement, is not determined to be necessary in accordance with paragraph 13, then, if it involves cost in the construction of works under paragraph 6 exceeding that which would have been involved if the apparatus placed had been of the existing type, capacity or dimensions, or at the existing depth, as the case may be, the amount which apart from this sub-paragraph would be payable to the undertakers by virtue of sub-paragraph (1) shall be reduced by the amount of that excess.

(4)For the purposes of sub-paragraph (3)—

(a)an extension of apparatus to a length greater than the length of existing apparatus shall not be treated as a placing of apparatus of greater dimensions than those of the existing apparatus except in a case where the apparatus as so extended serves a purpose (either additional to or instead of that served by the existing apparatus) which was not served by the existing apparatus, and

(b)where the provision of a joint in a cable is agreed, or is determined to be necessary, the consequential provision of a jointing chamber or of a manhole shall be treated as if it also had been agreed or had been so determined.

(5)An amount which apart from this sub-paragraph would be payable to the undertakers in respect of works by virtue of this paragraph shall, if the works include the placing of apparatus provided in substitution for apparatus placed more than 7½ years earlier so as to confer on the undertakers any financial benefit by deferment of the time for renewal of the apparatus or of the system of which it forms part in the ordinary course, be reduced by the amount which represents that benefit.

(6)In any case where work is carried out by the nominated undertaker pursuant to paragraph 6 and, if such work had been carried out by the undertakers, the repayment made to the undertakers under this paragraph would fall to be reduced pursuant to sub-paragraphs (3) to (5), the undertakers shall pay to the nominated undertaker such sum as represents the amount of that reduction.

12(1)Subject to sub-paragraphs (2) and (3), if by reason of the construction of any of the works authorised by this Act, or any subsidence resulting from any of those works, any damage is caused to any apparatus (other than apparatus the repair of which is not reasonably necessary in view of its intended removal for the purposes of those works) or property of the undertakers, or there is any interruption in any service provided, or in the supply of any goods, by any of the undertakers, the nominated undertaker shall bear and pay the cost reasonably incurred by the undertakers in making good such damage or restoring the supply and shall—

(a)make reasonable compensation to the undertakers for loss sustained by them, and

(b)indemnify the undertakers against claims, demands, proceedings, and damages which may be made or taken against, or recovered from the undertakers,

by reason of any such damage or interruption.

(2)Nothing in sub-paragraph (1) shall impose any liability on the nominated undertaker with respect to any damage or interruption to the extent that it is attributable to the act, neglect or default of the undertakers, their officers, servants, contractors or agents.

(3)The undertakers shall give the nominated undertaker reasonable notice of any such claim or demand and no settlement or compromise of any such claim or demand shall be made without the consent of the nominated undertaker which, if it withholds such consent, shall have the sole conduct of any settlement or compromise or of any proceedings necessary to resist the claim or demand.

13(1)Any dispute arising between the nominated undertaker and the undertakers under this Part shall be determined by arbitration if—

(a)the parties agree, or

(b)the dispute relates to the amount of any sum payable under this Part,

but shall otherwise by determined by a person appointed by the appropriate Ministers.

(2)Any person appointed by the appropriate Ministers under sub-paragraph (1) shall, in determining any dispute arising under this Part, have regard to such matters as may be specified by the appropriate Ministers on making the appointment.

(3)In this paragraph “the appropriate Ministers” means the Secretary of State for Transport acting jointly with either the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs or the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform.

(4)Subject to sub-paragraph (5), if within a reasonable period, being not less than 28 days from the date when a notice under sub-paragraph (3) is served upon the nominated undertaker, it has failed to begin taking steps to comply with the requirements of the notice and thereafter to make reasonably expeditious progress towards their implementation, the Agency may execute the works specified in the notice and any expenditure reasonably incurred by it in so doing shall be recoverable from the nominated undertaker.

(5)In the event of any dispute as to whether sub-paragraph (3) is properly applicable to any work in respect of which notice has been served under that sub-paragraph, or as to the reasonableness of any requirement of such a notice, the Agency shall not, except in an emergency, exercise the powers conferred by sub-paragraph (4) until the dispute has been finally determined.

5(1)Any work constructed under this Act for the purpose of providing a flood defence shall be maintained to the reasonable satisfaction of the Agency by the person who has control of the work.
