On 15 May 2013 Brockman Iron Pty Ltd made a proposal to The Pilbara Infrastructure Pty Ltd for use of two sections of railway. On 14 August 2013 the ERA approved the commencement of negotiations between TPI and Brockman on the proposal.
Floor and Ceiling Costs Determination

prices that would apply. The ERA assessed TPI’s proposal and did not
approve the floor and ceiling costs. On 12 September 2013 the ERA

Following a judicial review initiated by TPI, the Authority was required to re-make the determination. The re-made determination was provided to the parties in December 2014.
