Join operators, infrastructure managers, policymakers, regulators and rail industry experts for an afternoon of frank discussion and debate on a key topic for the sector.
Background
EU legislation requires that Member States have non-discriminatory track access charges for rail operators. The recast of the first Railway Package clarified how these should be derived, based on factors including the cost of maintenance and renewals resulting from wear and tear; congestion, scarcity and environmental charges; and mark-ups.
However, with notable differences in access charges for passenger and freight trains, and with significantly divergent approaches between Member States, the question arises: do the levels of track access charges in Europe really reflect the costs?
Against this background, a new CERRE research project, led by CERRE Research Fellow Prof. Chris Nash (University of Leeds) will deliver a general overview of rail track access charging principles and issues in Europe. It will draw on a number of national case studies, reviewing the charging systems in place and the principles and evidence on which they are based.
From this, the report will deliver recommendations for European and national policymakers, regulators, and infrastructure managers on the most appropriate approaches to track access charges.

This CERRE Executive Seminar will present and debate these policy recommendations with stakeholders from all corners of the industry: incumbent and new operators, infrastructure managers, regulators, policymakers and rail industry experts.
This event is reserved for CERRE members' representatives and a limited number of non-members.
