Capital expenditure claim

In effect

Queensland Rail’s 2020 access undertaking provides for the QCA to assess the prudency of its capital expenditure each year, before the capital expenditure is included in the regulatory asset base (RAB). Our assessment focuses on the scope, standard of works, and cost of capital expenditure, in accordance with schedule E of the 2020 access undertaking.

The West Moreton system is the only Queensland Rail network with a QCA-approved RAB.
