When allocating a dedicated preamble for the random access, E-UTRAN ensures it is available from the first RACH occasion the UE may use. So in short network allocates a reserved preamble to the UE thus drastically reducing the possibility of collisions with other UEs and sharply reducing the access delay.

Now with above definition we can deduce what the common preamble is i.e. the collision can occur hence the access delay.
