Network Rail in partnership with the promoter are responsible for assessing the impact on operational performance of rail projects. Together, they agree bilaterally on the impact of projects and submit their calculations to The Office of the Rail Regulator (ORR) to evaluate. The ORR in consultation with the Strategic Rail Authority has the power to adjust/reset benchmarks accordingly.
