The Bridgewater Canal Co Ltd v GEO Networks Ltd – WLR Daily

Posted December 2nd, 2010 in canals, compensation, construction industry, law reports, telecommunications by sally

The Bridgewater Canal Co Ltd v GEO Networks Ltd [2010] EWCA Civ 1348; [2010] WLR (D) 306

“On the proper construction of the Electronic Communications Code, set out in Sch 2 to the Telecommunications Act 1984 as amended by the Communications Act 2003, the special regime which applied to linear obstacles differed not only from the general regime but also from the other special regimes for which the code provided. When determining, under para 13(2)(e of Sch 2), an award of compensation or consideration in respect of the right to carry out works and the loss sustained by reason of doing so in implementation of the right to install and keep, there was no reason to interpolate into the words ‘the right to carry out the works’ in para (13)(2)(e) the additional words ‘and to keep the same’. Accordingly, an operator of a communications network installing a cable through an existing duct under a canal was liable to pay to the person with control of the land compensation only for the right to execute the works and not also for the right to keep them on the relevant land as and when executed.”
