This section contains decisions we have made since 2019. For older decisions, please see our decisions library. All approved agreements and subsequently approved amendments to track access decisions are held on our public register.
For holders of EU passenger licences we updated their GB Statement of National Regulatory Provisions (SNRP) as well as their station licences on 3 December 2019. On 24 June 2020 we also updated those operators who just hold station licences too. For operators who provide traction only services, we have as yet not modified their SNRPs.
We grant licences to operators of railway assets and approve access to the railway track, stations and depots. Copies of approved licences, access contracts and associated documents are placed on our electronic public register.
This section contains the latest documents relating to track access applications we are currently considering. This may include application forms, draft agreements, any related documents and responses we make public.
We are making changes to the model track access contract to reflect new arrangements concerning access arrangements for the Core Valleys Lines (CVL). These are particularly relevant for those who wish to operate freight trains between the CVL and Network Rail Infrastructure Ltd’s (Network Rail’s) network.
This page contains all Core Valley Lines (CVL) track access application consultations, decisions, consolidated agreements, and the CVL charging framework. It also contains information on the CVL Network Code, including details of any approved modifications to the Code, and our consultations on a network licence for the operator of the network.
