Dear Mark and Chris
Approval of the 23rd supplemental agreement to the track access contract
between Network Rail Infrastructure Limited and Grand Central Railway
Company t.a Grand Central dated 1 August 2014
We have today approved the above supplemental agreement submitted to us formally on
29 February 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 extend Grand Central’s contingent rights from SCD
2024 to PCD 2024 on the Sunderland route only, in line with the Network Rail ECML
access rights policy. This is effected by replacing Table 2.2 and Table 4.1 in Schedule 5
with a new table in which the footnote indicating when the rights expire is amended from
SCD 2024 to PCD 2024
Industry consultation
Network Rail undertook the usual industry consultation, no concerns were raised.
