On 18 May 2016, we published our initial consultation on the 2018 periodic review (PR18). This set out our proposal to regulate Network Rail at route-level, alongside a tailored approach to regulating Network Rail’s system operation functions. In support of developing the detailed policy framework for this, we published a working paper exploring how route level regulation might work in practice (alongside two working papers on system operation).
We also published a short note summarising the key points from the responses and our comments on them. This also set out next steps in developing the framework for route-level regulation. This included our consultation on our draft guidance to Network Rail on its strategic business plans (SBPs).
