QR has requested that the 2008 Access Undertaking be extended until the earlier of:
- 30 June 2016, or
- the date on which the QCA approves a replacement access undertaking.
The QCA has already approved a number of extensions to the termination date of the 2008 Access Undertaking pending the approval of a replacement undertaking.
On 12 December 2014, QR withdrew its Draft Access Undertaking 1 (AU1) which was proposed to replace the 2008 Access Undertaking. QR are expected to submit a revised draft access undertaking this month.
QCA has commenced its investigation into QR’s most recent extension request and invites stakeholders of the 2008 Access Undertaking to make submissions by 5pm 4 May 2015.
