Rates for crossing maintenance and construction
The Guide to Railway Charges for Crossing Maintenance and Construction 2016 provides a third-party assessment of rail costs and sets consistent, nation-wide schedules and guidelines for work performed by railway companies.
This guide may be used by federal railway companies when charging for work performed at:
- crossing warning systems; or
- any other crossing-related work either agreed to by the parties or authorized by an order of the Agency.
The Agency is reviewing guidance materials as part of its Regulatory Modernization Initiative. As a result, the rates in the Guide to Railway Charges for Crossing Maintenance and Construction will remain unchanged for 2016.
