Interstate rail network access undertaking to continue

The Australian Rail Track Corporation’s (ARTC) 2008 interstate rail network access undertaking has been revised to operate for another 12 months, in an ACCC decision announced today.

The revised variation also increases the notification period in which ARTC must inform the ACCC whether it will submit a replacement undertaking from three months to six months before the expiry date.
