203 Acquisition of land for purposes of road
(1) A roads authority may compulsorily acquire land the subject of a
road widening order by means of an acquisition notice under the Land Acquisition (Just Terms Compensation) Act
1991 without the need for a proposed acquisition notice under
(2) An acquisition notice may not be issued for the purposes of this
Division unless the acquiring authority is satisfied that the land is clear of
any building or structure.
(3) However, an acquisition notice is not invalid merely because of
the existence on the land of any building or structure as at the time the
notice is given.
(4) Nothing prevents an acquisition notice being given under this
Division at the same time as notice of the road widening order is given to the
owner of the land.
