On 20 August 2020, we published our decision to approve Queensland Rail’s 2018-19 capital expenditure claim.
Copies of our decision notice, Queensland Rail’s capital expenditure claim and related documents are available below.
We assess the prudency of Queensland Rail’s capital expenditure annually to determine whether the capital expenditure should be included in Queensland Rail’s regulatory asset base, focusing on the scope, standard of works and cost.
The assessment framework is set out in schedule E of the 2020 access undertaking.
Queensland Rail submitted its 2018–19 capital expenditure claim on 20 December 2019.
We assessed the claim against the criteria outlined in schedule E, with independent expert advice from Flagstaff Consulting Group, and decided to accept the claimed expenditure into the RAB.
