INVESTIGATION INTO POSSIBLE CO-OPERATION IN ROAD CONSTRUCTION AND LAND CLEARANCE

UNTERSUCHUNGEN UEBER EINE ZWECKMAESSIGE KOOPERATION VON STRASSENBAU UND FLURBEREINIGUNG

IN THE ACQUISITION ON THE OPEN MARKET OF LAND USED FOR AGRICULTURE, FOR ROAD CONSTRUCTION PURPOSES, CONSIDERABLE SUMS HAVE AS A RULE TO BE PAID TO THE OWNERS OF THE LAND CONCERNED AS DAMAGES IN RESPECT OF LOSS OF LAND AND BUSINESS. ON THE OTHER HAND, LAND CLEARANCE CARRIED OUT IN CONJUNCTION WITH ROAD CONSTRUCTION OFTEN HAS CONSIDERABLE ADVANTAGES, BECAUSE: IN GENERAL NO BUSINESS IS ENDANGERED, NO SHAPELESS AREAS ARE LEFT, AND THE NUMBER OF CROSSING STRUCTURES, DRAINS AND CULVERTS CAN BE KEPT SMALL. IN THIS RESEARCH BASED ON PRACTICAL EXAMPLES, GUIDELINES FOR OPTIMUM COLLABORATION BETWEEN ROAD CONSTRUCTION AND LAND CLEARANCE ENGINEERS AND A SOLUTION TO ASSOCIATED PROBLEMS WILL BE ESTABLISHED. BASED ON THE EXAMPLE OF LARGE-SCALE ROAD CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS IN NORTHRHINEWESTPHALIA, HESSE, BADEN-WURTTEMBERG AND BAVARIA, A COMPARATIVE STUDY WILL BE CARRIED OUT OF THE TOTAL COSTS TO BE BORNE BY THE AUTHORITY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ROAD CONSTRUCTION IN THE CASE WHERE THE LAND IS BOUGHT ON THE OPEN MARKET AND MADE AVAILABLE BY LAND CLEARANCE.
