Tarcoola to Darwin Railway - ten year review of revenues
- Project Released: 19 Nov 2014
- Project Closes: 28 Aug 2015
- Contact: Nathan Petrus
The Tarcoola-Darwin Railway is subject to a third-party access regime
established under the AustralAsia Railway (Third Party Access) Act 1997 (the
Code) for below-rail railway infrastructure services. This regime is intended
to ensure that access to railway infrastructure services provided by a monopoly
operator is available on reasonable commercial terms.
The Code requires the Commission to review whether or not excessive revenues
have been earned for below-rail services that are not subject to a sustainable
competitive price during the first 10 years of operation (and every five years
thereafter) and, if it has, to put in place more targeted regulatory measures
which will ensure that excessive revenues are not earned the future.
Current status is Final

The Commission has completed its Final Report on the Tarcoola-Darwin Railway

earned in respect of non-competitive infrastructure services provided on the
Tarcoola-Darwin Railway for the period from 15 January 2004 to 30 June 2013.
The Commission acknowledges the submissions it received in relation to the
project and thanks stakeholders for their valuable input.
