We have today issued review implementation notices under Schedule 4A to the Railways Act 1993 (the Act). These complete the statutory implementation process for PR18, confirming that the changes we proposed to make to track and station access agreements in the review notices we issued on 20 December 2018 are to be implemented as planned on 1 April 2019. The notices direct the parties to relevant access agreements to enter into a supplemental agreement so that the proposed changes come into operation on and from 1 April 2019.
Hard copies of the letter and the notices have been put in the post today to those on whom we must serve review implementation notices under the Act. (For Network Rail and train operators, these have been sent to their company secretaries.)
