System rules

Status
In progress

The system rules provide details of the processes and systems used to plan and schedule train services within the Central Queensland coal network (CQCN). These rules are in addition to the principles described in Aurizon Network’s access undertaking (UT5). The access undertaking also allows Aurizon Network to review system rules at least once a year and, where required, to identify improvements and propose amendments.

Review of the system rules 2024

On 7 March 2024, Aurizon Network submitted amendments to the Central Queensland coal network system rules for our approval. Aurizon Network is proposing to trial a new planning and scheduling process.

We invited stakeholders to comment on the proposed changes and our preliminary view that these are appropriate to approve. Submissions are now closed.

We are continuing to assess Aurizon Network’s proposal.
