(a)authorise or require the highway authority for any road in Greater London which is not a trunk road to place in the carriageway such bollards or other obstructions as the Minister or Council may consider appropriate for preventing the passage of vehicles, or vehicles of any class, at any point at which their passage (whether in any direction or in one direction only) is prohibited by any such order as aforesaid and to maintain and light those obstructions ;

(b)authorise or require any highway authority to remove any obstruction placed by that authority in pursuance of an authorisation or requirement under paragraph (a) above.

(1A)Subsection (1A) of section 69 of this Act shall apply in relation to the placing of bollards or other obstructions under subsection (1) above as if for any reference in the said subsection (1A) to subsection (1) of that section there were substituted a reference to subsection (1) above.

(2)To such extent as the Minister or, as the case may be, the Council may consider necessary in connection with any order such as is mentioned in subsection (1) above, whether made or proposed to be made by the Minister or by the Council, the Minister may do with respect to any trunk road, or as the case may be the Council may do with respect to any metropolitan road, any thing which the authority making or proposing to make the order might under subsection (1)(a) above require to be done with respect to any other road by the highway authority therefor.

(3)If a highway authority fail to comply with any requirement under subsection (1) above, the Minister or, as the case may be, the Council may carry out the work required by the requirement, and the expense incurred by the Minister or Council in so doing shall be recoverable summarily as a civil debt from the authority.

(4)References in this section to a highway authority include references to any person who, not being a highway authority, is responsible for the maintenance of a road.
