Under section 7(1) of the Pipe-lines Act 1962, the construction of a pipe-line of a length not exceeding 16.093 km which is to form an addition to another is deemed to constitute the construction of a cross-country pipe-line (the construction of which would be unlawful unless authorised by the Secretary of State under section 1 of the Act), if the aggregate length of both exceeds 16.093km. However, section 7(2) enables the Secretary of State to direct that section 7(1) shall not apply to the construction of pipe-lines of a specified class within a specified area. This Order provides that section 7(1) shall not apply to the construction of natural gas pipe-lines in a particular part of Hertfordshire.
