What Is A Sidetrack Agreement

A secondary track agreement is an agreement between a railway company and a landowner whose land is used as part of the company`s railway.

The directive restores liability to the owner of the land and the railway company, as would be the case without a contract with the landscaping company. A subsidiary decision nullifies the contractual liability provision and strengthens the “no damages” regime.
