The adoption of Section 37 allows the developer to build the road and complete the development without the need for a formal road agreement with the motorway authority. Provided that the road is considered sufficiently useful to the public to justify its maintenance at public expense and that it has been built according to acceptable specifications, the motorway authority would accept the dedication message proposed by the developer and after a maintenance period of 12 months, the road would become accessible at public expense. If, as part of a development, it is proposed to construct a new land road for residential, industrial or general transport, the normal legal means by which the road becomes a public road is an agreement under section 38 of the Highways Act 1980. These agreements are entered into by the developers in order to provide a legal vehicle that allows them to transfer the status and responsibility of a new new road(s) to the local authority, provided that they have been built to the required specifications and standards. The procedure necessary to reach an agreement can take time and time and it is therefore desirable to start an interview with the motorway authority as soon as possible as part of the project. What is an Article 278 agreement? Another Highways Bond that was registered by the developer with the city council to cover the crossover changes. (For example, turning circuits, accesses, intersections, roundabouts, traffic lights, etc.) The agreement is voluntary and between a developer and the board. This agreement contains sufficient borrowing to ensure that the Council can build/repair the hub if the developer does not do so. This loan is terminated only if the local authority is satisfied that a new motorway has been built to acceptable standards or that an agreement is concluded in accordance with Section 38, in which case the link is often transferred as a partner. What is a Section 38 agreement? § 38 Agreements are obligations of motorways, as requested by the local authorities. Including Scottish Irish equivalents.
Section 38 shall be established between the developer and the Council or competent authority in order to ensure the completion and adoption of a new road development system. The agreement is voluntary and between a developer and the board. The developer agrees to issue a loan or provide cash guarantees equal to the value of the road works and covers this line until the end of the period of elimination of defects and issuance of the final certificate by the Council at the time of its adoption. . . .
