Dear Paul and Sue
Approval of the 13th supplemental agreement to the track access
contract between Network Rail Infrastructure Limited (Network Rail) and
First Trenitalia West Coast Rail Limited (trading as Avanti West Coast
(AWC)) dated 1 December 2022
We have today approved the above supplemental agreement submitted to us formally on
31 May 2024 under section 22 of the Railways Act 1993 (the Act). This follows an earlier
informal submission of a draft agreement for our consideration. This letter explains the
reasons for our decision.
Purpose
The purpose of this agreement is to correct an administrative error whereby a surrendered
right was included in table 2.1 of Schedule 5 as part of the earlier 10th Supplemental
Agreement (SA), but a right that partly replaced it was not, which resulted in its not being
approved as part of the 10th SA. This amendment is to commence on the Subsidiary
Change Date in June 2024 and will expire on the Expiry Date or earlier termination of
AWC’s track access contract.
Industry consultation
Network Rail undertook the usual industry consultation. No queries or concerns were
raised.
