We intend to work closely with the National Rail System Standard (NRSS) Executive with an aim to implementing and closing out this recommendation as soon as practicable. The NZ Transport Agency sits of the NRSS Executive as an observer. We will also consider a strategy for rail operators outside the NRSS coverage.
