Whenever in connection with construction or operation of any public facility, any authority shall determine that it is necessary that any such works, which now are or hereafter may be located in, on, along, over or under any such real property, should be relocated in such real property or should be removed therefrom, the public utility owning or operating such works shall relocate or remove the same in accordance with the order of the authority, provided, however, that the cost and expenses of such relocation or removal, including the cost of installing such works in a new location or new locations, and the cost of any lands or any rights or interest in lands or any other rights acquired to accomplish such relocation or removal, less the cost of any lands or any rights or interests in lands or any other rights of the public utility paid to the public utility in connection with the relocation or removal of such works, shall be paid by the authority and may be included in the cost of such public facility. In case of any such relocation or removal of works as aforesaid, the public utility owning or operating the same, its successors or assigns, may maintain and operate such works, with the necessary appurtenances, in the new location or new locations for as long a period, and upon the same terms and conditions, as it had the right to maintain and operate such works in their former location.
