(a)the defendant shows that the nuisance—

(i)relates to premises used by Network Rail for the purposes of or in connection with the exercise of the powers conferred by this Order with respect to the authorised works and that the nuisance is attributable to the carrying out of the authorised works in accordance with a notice served under section 60 (control of noise on construction site), or a consent given under section 61 (prior consent for work on construction site), of the Control of Pollution Act 1974(3); or

(ii)is a consequence of the operation of the authorised works and that it cannot reasonably be avoided.
