If the party wishes to carry out the work of surveying and building its private siding by a railway-approved consultant advisor/engineer,this may be permitted. Certified advisors may also perform work on the siding and yard under the close supervision of the railway, for which separate monitoring fees should be levied, pursuant to clause 1829-E.c) layout of the siding/station based on expected traffic, movement direction and other operational requirements. A standard form of the private siding agreement was distributed in the letter 78/W1/SA/3 Dt. 15.2.85 vacuum Board.
b) In all existing or new sidings, the maintenance costs of the OVER Head Equipment (OHE) are borne by the railways. Before building bridge-bridges, the costs of which are borne in whole or in part by the road authority, they should be required to execute an agreement with the railways, which should, among other things, clearly state their responsibility for the assumption of upfront, recurring/maintenance and other costs.
