star this property answer text <p>The independent regulator, the Office of Rail Regulation (ORR), is responsible for overseeing and enforcing Network Rail’s obligations, including the delivery of infrastructure projects. On 20 November ORR published its assessment, in the ‘Network Rail Monitor’, of Network Rail’s performance in the first two quarters of Control Period 5 (2014-19) covering the period 1 April to 11 October 2014. ORR reported that following a period of relatively successful delivery in Control Period 4 (2009-14) Network Rail has not made the expected progress in the early stages of certain enhancement projects in Control Period 5. ORR has asked Network Rail to produce an improvement plan to demonstrate how it will change its approach to make up for these delays and will hold Network Rail to account for its delivery. DfT is working extremely closely with ORR and Network Rail to ensure that the vital passenger benefits in the Rail Investment Strategy are delivered.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>There have been no general discussions between Her Majesty’s Government and Network Rail in relation to giving Network Rail additional compulsory purchase powers for the purposes mentioned. Her Majesty's Governmentand Network Rail from time to time discuss particular applications by Network Rail, under section 14 of the Railway Regulation Act 1842, in relation to obtaining temporary access to land neighbouring the railway, where this is needed for the purpose of certain safety works on the railway.</p><p> </p><p>Network Rail can also apply to Her Majesty's Government, under section 15 of that Act, for a revival of the compulsory purchase powers which would originally have applied under the enabling legislation for the relevant stretch of railway; again this would be where such acquisition is needed to be able to effect safety repairs and works. Each application by Network Rail under section 14 and 15 is considered on its specific facts and the safety issues arising.</p><p> </p><p>The powers of entry arising under section 14 of the 1842 Act were considered both by the Transport Resilience Review and the Powers of Entry Review under the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012. Following on from these Her Majesty's Government expects to consult with Network Rail and other stakeholders over a code of practice in relation to the use of section 14.</p><p> </p>
