(2) In Part 3 of the 1991 Act references, in relation to major highway works, to the highway authority concerned are, in relation to works which are major highway works by virtue of paragraph (1), to be construed as references to the Secretary of State.

(7) Nothing in article 9 (construction and maintenance of new, altered or diverted streets)—

(a)affects the operation of section 87 of the 1991 Act (prospectively maintainable highways), and the Secretary of State is not by reason of any duty under that article to maintain a street to be taken to be the street authority in relation to that street for the purposes of Part 3 of that Act; or
