Crossrail Act 2008

Railway matters

Section 30: Duty to co-operate

86.Section 30(1) provides a mechanism for the nominated undertaker to require others to co-operate with him during the construction, maintenance and operation of Crossrail, by entering into an agreement to deal with a problem relating to a railway asset. This provision reflects the fact that Crossrail will interact with the existing railways, both overland and underground.

87.Section 30(2) provides a reciprocal mechanism for the benefit of any controller of a railway asset (most likely an owner or operator of track) affected by the construction, maintenance or operation of Crossrail.

88.Section 30(3) provides for the terms of any such agreements to be agreed between the parties, or else referred to arbitration (for which arbitration section 31 makes provision).

89.Section 30(5) provides that the mechanisms arising under subsections (1) and (2) do not apply where the matter requiring resolution is under the (statutory or contractual) jurisdiction of the Office of Rail Regulation.
