The Office of Rail Regulation (ORR) is an independent body. It is a matter for ORR, with the agreement of its reporters and Network Rail, who are both parties to the contract, whether to publish these contracts. However, the ORR informs me that the contract specification was published in the Official Journal of the European Union at the time of tendering for the reporter.
