Consultation on procedures for access to the rail network

ORR consultation letter (3 pages, PDF) covering proposed revisions to the criteria and procedures for the approval under the Railways Act 1993 of network access agreements for passenger services (111 pages, PDF) and freight services (107 pages, PDF). The letter states that the proposed changes reflect recent ORR policy developments on access contracts and legislative amendments such as the abolition of the SRA and the changes to the safety regulation regime, and that no other change in the ORR's approach to approval is proposed.
