Closing date: 4 November 2013

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.
