This consultation was extended to 4 November 2013, as explained in our update letter of 25 October 2013 clarifying the contractual wording in relation to freight operators.

This consultation set out the specific changes to track access agreements that we would need to make to implement our capacity charge policy options. The options were consulted on over the course of the summer and were explained in the consultation letter.

Following this consultation, we will take into account stakeholders' comments as well as the decisions that we make in our final determination which was published on 31 October 2013. We will then begin the process of implementing our 2013 periodic review (PR13) determination into track access agreements. The changes will then come into effect on 1 April 2014.

Consultation letter

Our consultation letter gave an overview of the policy options whilst the specific amendments to access contracts were set out below.

Changes to track access contracts

Please note that the version of Schedule 7 we used is that which we consulted on in our implementation consultation of 12 July 2013.

Please also not that we are not proposing changes to the contractual wording for Schedule 7 for franchised passenger operators other than those on which we consulted in the implementation consultation.
