These price lists are consistent with the Office of Rail and Road’s (ORR) Final Determination, and are referenced in track and station access contracts.

We publish annual updates to the price lists to reflect the effect of inflation. Price lists uplifted for CPI will be published on this page in March each year.

Price Lists updated to reflect inflation

ORR expressed its Final Determination in 2017/18 prices, so we have had to update them to reflect inflation since then. These apply from 1 April each year.

Heathrow Spur Traction Electricity Price modelled consumption rates

HAL is the owner of the Heathrow Spur which is adjacent to and connects with Network Rail's Network. Trains operating on the Heathrow Spur draw traction electricity from the Heathrow Spur overhead line electricity (OHLE) system. The electrical power for the Heathrow Spur OHLE system is provided by a feeder station owned by Network Rail, which also provides electrical power to Network Rail's Network. 

The parties' objective is that the methodology for the calculation and payment of charges for traction electricity consumption on the Heathrow Spur is consistent with the methodology for the calculation and payment of charges for traction electricity consumption on Network Rail's Network.

HAL and Network Rail have therefore agreed that charges for traction electricity consumption on the Heathrow Spur shall be administered by Network Rail and shall be calculated and paid substantially in accordance with the Industry Framework that applies on Network Rail's Network.
