The Transport and Works Act 1992 changes the very basis on which statutory authority for major infrastructure developments will in future be obtained. Projects such as railways, tramways, ports and harbours will, in most cases, no longer be approved by parliamentary bills, but by new ministerial orders following public local enquiries.
The changes made will be of major significance to lawyers, planners, local and central government officials, statutory undertakers, local authorities (including development corporations) and lobbyists. The changes are so radical that nobody in the field can afford to ignore them.
The second part of the act deals with safety matters concerning railways and other forms of guided transport. It reflects the realization, following railway accidents such as Clapham Junction and the fire at King's Cross, that additional controls were needed to ensure safety.;One of a series, this guide contains both the text of the Transport and Works Act 1992 and a guide explaining the major provisions and their practical implications.
