Aurizon Network installed and maintains electric traction infrastructure on the Blackwater and Goonyella lines of its network, which users pay for through an electric access tariff (AT5). Aurizon Network submitted a draft amending access undertaking (DAAU) to amend the electric traction pricing arrangements in its 2017 access undertaking.
In this DAAU, Aurizon Network proposed to change the way the electric traction tariff is calculated. Additionally, it proposed amendments in order to manage the risk associated with maintaining the electric network infrastructure.
Similar DAAUs were submitted under the 2016 access undertaking.
We approved Aurizon Network’s 2019 electric traction DAAU on 18 July 2019.
