RFG comment on ORR’s Draft Determination of Network Rail

Commenting on the Office of Rail and Road’s (ORR) Draft Determination of Network Rail, Maggie Simpson, RFG’s Executive Director, said: “We are pleased that the Office of Rail and Road have listened to the significant concerns of rail freight customers and operators, and propose to limit the increase in freight charges over the next control period. Although we need to understand the detailed impact on different markets, this should provide a stable framework for the next five years. We are however disappointed that ORR have chosen to increase charges for biomass traffic.

“In the longer term, Network Rail must now deliver on its efficiency targets so that the potential for further price increases in CP7 is reduced.”
