Within limits of undertaker’s works – Following notification from the undertaker, a joint inspection must be arranged before the commencement of all standard or major works to agree the extent of damaged, settled or deformed surfacing within the limits of the works. Where the authority does not provide suitable replacements to the undertaker in accordance with paragraph A12.3.1, it may contribute to the undertaker the sum notified by the undertaker as the cost of replacing the same.
Outside limits of undertaker’s works – Following notification from the undertaker, a joint inspection must be arranged to agree the need and extent of any remedial measures outside of the limits of the undertaker’s works. An apportionment of the additional costs based on the relative areas of permanent reinstatement must be agreed. In the event of an authority failing to agree to meet a proportion of the costs of reinstating modules, the undertaker must proceed in accordance with S2.8.
Prior joint inspections will usually be impractical for minor and immediate works. However, such works are usually small individual openings and a proportion of such works will be inspected by the authority within the sample inspection regime. On completion of all minor and immediate works, the undertaker must be free, and at its discretion subject to S2.8 and A12.3.3, to recover all reasonable costs from the authority according to the procedure illustrated in Figure A12.1.
