Holding Network Rail to account

How we will hold Network Rail (including routes, the System Operator (SO), and other relevant business units) to account against the network licence.

Consultation on changes to operator licences

24 September 2020
Body
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 now modified their SNRPs.

Passenger Information Improvement Plan

We have asked that Network Rail, train and station operators, work together under the governance structure of the Rail Delivery Group (RDG) Board to publish a Passenger Information Improvement Plan and revise it and re-issue it annually.

Updating the model freight services track access contract for the CVL interface

27 April 2020

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.
