It is also described how the local Highway Authority can act if the developer does not complete the work. Upon receipt of your application and all the required information in the checklist, your application will be assigned to one of our motorway managers.

Please note that the following fees and royalties are estimates and may vary depending on the technical complexity and size of the development. We confirm our estimate of the fees you must pay before granting the agreement in accordance with Section 278. They may be held responsible for any additional costs incurred during or as a result of the work.
