Consultation description

We are inviting views on a new general approval for freight track access contracts, in particular:

  • is the proposed range of the arrival and departure windows that can be generally approved be useful and should this range be broader or narrower?
  • should the provision for amending access rights to match the working timetable be expanded?
  • is there any value in having a revised general approval?

This proposed new general approval reflects changes in industry processes and model freight track access contracts and includes modifications to make the general approval shorter and easier to use.
