Aurizon Network's revenue adjustment

In progress

Aurizon Network operates under a revenue cap regime, where any over- or under-recovery of its approved revenues in any given year is returned (recouped) through a reference tariff adjustment two years later. The adjustment amount is referred to as a revenue adjustment amount.

The 2017 access undertaking requires Aurizon Network to submit a revenue adjustment application to us every year.

We applied the 2016 access undertaking process (UT4) in assessing this submission in accordance with the transitional provisions. The 2017 access undertaking (UT5) came into effect on 21 February 2019.
