Power of Authority temporarily to prohibit or restrict traffic on roads
115.
—(1)  Subject to this section, if the Authority is satisfied that traffic on any road should, by reason of any construction works or works of repair being required or being in progress on, over or under the road, be restricted or prohibited, the Authority may, if it thinks fit, restrict or prohibit the use of that road or any part thereof by vehicles or by vehicles of any particular class or description to such extent and subject to such conditions or exceptions as the Authority may consider necessary.
[24/2010 wef 01/11/2010]
(2)  The Authority shall cause a notice to be issued to the general public or to such persons as the Authority may determine, informing them of the prohibition or restriction and of the alternative route or routes, if any, available for traffic.

(5)  The Authority may at any time by notice restrict or prohibit temporarily the use of any road or part thereof by vehicles or by vehicles of any particular class or description where, owing to the likelihood of danger to the public or of serious damage to the road or part thereof, it appears to the Authority to be necessary that such restriction or prohibition should come into force without delay.
[24/2010 wef 01/11/2010]
(6)  Any such notice shall describe the alternative route or routes, if any, available for traffic and shall be issued in such form and manner and for such period as the Authority thinks fit.

(7A)  For the purposes of subsection (1), any person who intends to carry out any construction works or works of repair on, over or under the road shall give notice to the Authority in the prescribed form and manner, and within the prescribed time before the commencement of the works, failing which he shall be guilty of an offence.
