H11.3Contents of Train Regulation Statements

ttc13

June 1996

The Committee endorsed the general principle of level 1, level 2 and level 3 statements as a pragmatic mechanism by which Railtrack could discharge its responsibilities for creating a regulation statement for each discrete part of the Network, in order to achieve the Train Regulation Objective described in Access Condition H11.1.

A Train Operator may challenge the Train Regulation Statement, in regard to those parts of the Network over which it has Access Rights, on the grounds that the practical application has, or is likely to have, a demonstrably unfair impact upon that Operatorís business.†† {ttc13}

H11.3Contents of Train Regulation Statements

ttc190

October 2003

It is possible that a proposal to revise the Rules of the Route/ Rules of the Plan can only reasonably be implemented, without undue detriment to a Train Operator, if some commensurate adjustment is also made to the relevant Train Regulation Statement.†† Because of the necessary steps in the timetabling process (Rules of the Route/ Rules of the Plan revision then bid and offer for the Timetable) it is not practicable to withhold agreement to a change of Rules of the Route/ Rules of the Plan pending adjustment of the Train Regulation Statement, the need for which may only be evidenced at the conclusion of the Timetable preparation.†† However, there is an obligation on Network Rail to ensure that Track Access Condition H11 is invoked and the Train Regulation Statement revised, where appropriate, if this will mitigate the adverse impact on a Train Operator.†† Such amendments to the Train Regulation Statement are subject to the right of appeal in H11.9.†† {ttc190}
