On 29 April 2019, the QCA published a draft decision on Queensland Rail’s draft access undertaking for the period beginning 1 July 2020 (the 2020 DAU). Submissions on the draft decision were due by 11 July 2019.
On 11 June 2019 we re-published the draft decision document. It is unchanged from the draft decision published previously, except that the formatting of Box 2 on p. 66 is corrected.
The draft decision (as amended), Queensland Rail’s 2020 DAU and related documents are available below.
We published, along with the draft decision, a report on aspects of Queensland Rail’s weighted average cost of capital (WACC). It was prepared for the QCA by Incenta Economic Consulting.
On 11 June 2019, we published a report by Systra Scott Lister (Systra) on Queensland Rail’s proposed maintenance, capital and operating expenditure. Queensland Rail has claimed that some information in the report is confidential. We published the report with that information redacted, in the interests of making the remainder of the report available to all stakeholders within the submission period.
Both reports are available below.
The unredacted Systra report is available to interested parties, subject to agreement with Queensland Rail about the treatment of information that it has claimed is confidential.*
Draft decision reference tariff model
Our draft decision on the West Moreton System and Metropolitan System reference tariff model is available on request to interested parties, subject to agreement with Queensland Rail about the treatment of information that it has claimed is confidential.
* In light of these measures, formal assessment of Queensland Rail’s confidentiality claim by the QCA (pursuant to s. 187 of the Queensland Competition Authority Act 1997) has not as yet been required.
