Does Queensland Rail’s network satisfy criterion (a)

Queensland Rail asked HoustonKemp to review the Queensland Competition Authority’s (QCA’s) criterion (a) assessment that rail services should be declared and to assess whether these rail services satisfy criterion (a).

We discuss the economic concepts relevant to the assessment of criterion (a), apply this to Queensland Rail’s rail systems and assess the relevance and impact of Queensland Rail’s Access Framework.

This report was requested by Queensland Rail as part of its submissions to the QCA’s draft recommendation that three services on Queensland Rail’s network be declared for a period of 15 years.
