SEPARATING TRANSPORT TRACK FROM OPERATIONS: A TYPOLOGY OF INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCES

The 1980s represented a significant period of market liberalisation. The 1990s has seen much of the focus shift to questions of infrastructure provision and use. In sectors such as energy, telecommunications and transport policy makers have been seeking ways of separating operating units from infrastructure networks. This paper focuses on the rail industry and provides an overview of some of the approaches which are being developed around the world to initiate a new relationship between rail services suppliers and the providers of track and associated fixed facilities. It looks at the merits of the alternatives and at the lessons which are being learned. (A)
