If the Promoter abandons his undertaking or any part of the same, and takes up any tramway or any part of any tramway belonging to him, he shall, with all convenient speed, and in all cases within four weeks at the most (unless the Local Authority otherwise consent in writing) fill in the ground and make good the surface, and, to the satisfaction of the Local Authority, restore the portion of the road upon which such tramway was laid to as good a condition as that in which it was before such tramway was laid thereon, and clear away all surplus paving or metalling material or rubbish occasioned by such work; and he shall

All surplus metal on each separate route shall belong to and become the property of the Local Authority, and shall be cleared away by the Promoter, and deposited at such places as the Local Authority may direct within the Municipality.

(I.) The Local Authority shall have the right to use all the tramway lines between the hour of midnight and 5 a.m. for the purpose of running scavenger or other trucks, or distributing road metal, or any other works; provided that the lines are not required by the Promoter between those hours for the purpose of any repair, and that eight hours' previous notice shall be given to the Local Authority by the Promoter that he so requires the lines : Provided always, that, in the event of any damage being done to the lines by the Local Authority, such damage shall be made good at the expense of such Local Authority: Provided further, that all scavenger or other trucks to be used by the Local Authority as aforesaid shall be first submitted and approved of by the Promoter.

(J.) The Local Authority shall have the right to use all poles belonging to the Promoter for the purpose of street lighting; such poles to be approved of by the Local Authority before being erected. The position of such poles shall also be decided by the Local Authority, provided that, by so doing, it will not interfere with the Promoter's lines or wires or electric current, or any other power used; and provided, also, that not more than one lamp shall be placed on each pole.

(K.) The Promoter shall pay to the Local Authority 3 per cent. of the gross earnings derived from the working of the tramways, in accordance with Section 46 of the Tramways Act, 1885, such payment to be accepted in lieu of all municipal rates and taxes now levied or hereafter to be levied which the Local Authority but for this agreement would be entitled to impose or levy in respect of the tramway lines of all lands, buildings, or workings used exclusively in connection with the workings thereof. Such amount shall be calculated and paid quarterly: Provided that nothing shall be payable under this clause by the Promoter until three years from the granting of the Provisional Order.

The price to be paid by the Local Authority shall be the value of the whole tramway system within the municipality, and shall be ascertained by arbitration in manner provided by the Arbitration Act, 1895; provided that, in estimating the amount so to be paid, all freehold and leasehold lands shall be valued at the actual price paid by the Promoter for the same without interest, and nothing shall be allowed for the goodwill, nor shall the proceeds or earnings be considered in any way.

(M.) If the Local Authority shall not exercise the right of purchase mentioned in the preceding clause hereof, then at the end of thirty-five years from the date fixed for the completion of the works by the Provisional Order, the whole of the tram lines mentioned in the schedule hereto, together with all extensions thereof, if granted, and together with the entire undertaking, rights, plant, workings, freehold and leasehold lands, and buildings within the municipality used in connection therewith, shall be handed over to the Local Authority in good working order and condition, and free from all liens, mortgages, or other encumbrances, on the following terms, that is to say, as to all the present proposed lines and all extension should they be granted, made within ten years after the date fixed for the completion thereof, upon payment of the actual price without interest paid by the Promoter for the said freehold and leasehold lands, and as to all extensions which may be approved of and made after the said period of ten years, upon payment of the amount fixed by arbitration in the manner provided by the Arbitration Act now in force in the Colony: Provided that nothing shall be allowed for the goodwill, proceeds, or earnings of the said extensions.
