Damage to Highways by Leaks and Bursts
ISBN: 1 84057 077 6
Leaks and bursts can damage highways, and there are no procedures agreed by the water utilities and the highway authorities for assessing this damage. This project set out to review the legislation relating to damage caused to highways, and to develop procedures to assess this damage. It concluded that, under the New Roads and Street Works Act (NRSWA), it is no longer necessary to prove the water undertaker negligent before claims of compensation can be made. However, there have been few, if any, disagreements over damage to highways since the introduction of the NRSWA. There is a potential for idsputes to arise, so recommendaitons are given as to what information should be recorded in the event of a burst.
