52. From 1 April 1993, the colonization roads which are not maintained by either the Minister or a municipality shall cease to be colonization roads.
If such roads are merely laid out or projected, or if they are not used, the land set aside for them shall revert by law to the land from which it was detached and shall be the responsibility of the owner of that land.
If such roads are used, they shall remain the property of the State, under the authority of the Minister of Transport, and the provisions of the Act respecting the lands in the public domain (chapter T-8.1) relating to roads in the public domain shall apply to them until they are closed by order of the Minister.
