(".--(1) Where--
(a) provision is made by or under this Act for the repeal and re-enactment (with or without modifications) of any provision of the London Regional Transport Act 1984, and
(b) the provision as re-enacted ("the new provision") comes into force before the repeal of the provision of the London Regional Transport Act 1984 ("the old provision"),
subsection (2) below shall apply.
(2) Where this subsection applies, the provision that may be made by the Secretary of State under or by virtue of any power to make transitional provision by order under any provision of this Part includes power to make provision--
(a) for any reference to the old provision in any relevant document to be construed as, or as including, a reference to the new provision, or
(b) for anything made or done, or having effect as if made or done, under or by virtue of the old provision, to have effect, to the extent that it could have been made or done under or by virtue of the new provision, as if made or done under or by virtue of the new provision,

(3) In subsection (2) above "relevant document" means--
(a) any enactment;
(b) any instrument made under an enactment;
(c) any deed or other instrument;
(d) any agreement;
(e) any document not falling within the other paragraphs of this subsection.
(4) An order under subsection (2) above may make provision--
(a) in relation to all provisions falling within subsection (1)(b) above or such of those provisions as may be specified or described in the order; and
(b) generally or in relation to such cases or circumstances, or such relevant documents or descriptions of relevant documents, as may be so specified or described.
(5) Subsections (6) to (8) below have effect in relation to any agreement made by London Regional Transport under or by virtue of paragraph (a) of section 3(2A) of the London Regional Transport Act 1984 (whether or not the agreement is a transport subsidiary's agreement or has effect as if made under or by virtue of section 156(3) of this Act by Transport for London).
(6) In the case of any such agreement--
(a) no provision of the agreement shall operate or cease to have effect, and
(b) no rights under the agreement shall operate or become exercisable,
by reason only that a statutory duty exercisable by any body or person ("the predecessor") becomes exercisable instead by another body or person ("the transferee") in consequence of any provision made by or under this Act for the repeal and re-enactment (with or without modifications) of the provision imposing the statutory duty.
(7) Accordingly, any such agreement shall continue in force and have effect as if the predecessor and the transferee were in law the same person and as if there had been no change in the body or person by whom the statutory duty is exercisable.
(8) In any such agreement, or any agreement made in connection with such an agreement, any reference to London Regional Transport's duties under the London Regional Transport Act 1984 shall be taken as including a reference to the corresponding duties of Transport for London or the Authority (whether acting by the Mayor, the Assembly or the Mayor and Assembly acting jointly) under this Act.
(9) This section is without prejudice to--
(a) any power conferred by any other provision of this Act; and
(b) sections 15 to 17 of the Interpretation Act 1978.").
