2004 Code Review

The final report on the first review of the Railways Access Code was delivered to the Treasurer in December 2005. The report made recommendations seeking to improve the effectiveness of the rail access regime, which included:

  • the Code’s effectiveness in terms of its impact upon both the (below-rail) network service providers, and the (above-rail) network users (and their customers)
  • the impact of the Code upon activities in downstream industries
  • the impact of the Code upon the efficiency of investment in the rail network infrastructure
