Roy Hill Infrastructure’s railway line transports iron ore from its mine in the Pilbara to Port Hedland. This railway line is subject to the WA rail access regime under the Railway (Roy Hill Infrastructure Pty Ltd) Agreement Act 2010.
The regime requires that regulatory instruments, including Segregation Arrangements and Part 5 instruments (Train Path Policy, Train Management Guidelines, Costing Principles and Over-payment Rules) are approved by the ERA to ensure that negotiations may occur under the Code for access to the railway.
After consulting on the proposed instruments and draft decisions for each of the instruments and Segregation Arrangements the ERA published its final decision on the segregation arrangements on 7 April 2017 and the Part 5 instruments on 29 June 2017.
The ERA published approved Segregation Arrangements provided by Roy Hill Infrastructure on 7 August 2017 and published the remaining instruments on 21 September 2017.
