Access to the Rail Network
Access to the rail network in Ireland to operate a rail service is obtained from Iarnród Éireann Infrastructure Manger. Those wishing to access the network for this purpose should consult the Iarnród Éireann Network Statement which is available on Irish Rail’s website, http://www.irishrail.ie/about-us/iarnrod-eireann-network-statement.
Where an applicant has made a request for access and has any complaint with regards to the allocation of network capacity or the pricing of access to the network to operate a rail service then they may appeal to the decision to the CRR. The CRR will act as the independent adjudicator in relation to the area of dispute.
