Station Access Agreement


Station Access Agreement

If access rights are displayed several times under an SFO, but with derived data, it means that no contract renewal has been found in the public register, but it is known that trains start during this period. This page will be used as a summary of all presentation documents published by the ORR regarding access to stations and depots, including access agreements, access conditions, annexes, amending documents and modification agreements. There will be ten stations at the CCOS. Five of them will be part of the existing London Underground stations and will be operated by the London Underground and will not be part of this consultation. The other stations are new stations built as part of the Crossrail project, where there is no direct interface with the London Underground network and where RfL (I) will be the infrastructure manager in accordance with the 2016 regulations (RfL (I) stations). If contracts expire « at the end of the deductible », misunderstandings may have crept in due to the uncertainty surrounding service type changes. This is particularly the case for the launch of the First/Keolis Transpennine franchise, which has gradually taken over certain Arriva Trains Northern and North Western Trains Company services. Correction of errors is welcome. In normal operation, a train manager cannot at any time go to a station (except those he manages); an agreement must be reached with the station operator (pragmatism comes into play in an emergency). These terminal access agreements generally define what the terminal operator will do, what the train operator (defined as « beneficiary ») will do, and how much the recipient will pay for maintenance and operating costs. Access agreements are governed by the ORR and are available in its public registry. In theory, any combination of station/beneficiary/SFO requires a separate agreement and the first contracts were concluded in this way. Subsequently, several stations were treated in the same agreement.

The RfL (I) Station Access Conditions are a common set of rules applicable to each train operator who accesses an RfL (I) station. The RfL (I) Access Conditions are part of the RfL (I) Station Access Agreement. They define, for example, how charges are set, distributed among operators, how they can be variable and how changes are made to the RfL (I) station. The purpose of each document is briefly explained below. Further details are provided in the consultation document that accompanies the draft of each document. RfL (I) has taken into account, when drawing up these documents, existing equivalent documents from the railway industry. . . .
