Those that are interested in information and laws surrounding rights of way will often be about highways and busy roads. There are new highways being planned and built throughout the country all the time in order to make travelling for the public more efficient. The problem with this is that the building of highways often causes disruption to both local residents to the building areas as well as private land owners who are being affected.
