Trains run­ning late

Manchester Evening News - - NATIONAL -

MORE than one in seven trains were late in the 12 months to the end of Septem­ber, new fig­ures show.

Just 85.9% of trains met the rail in­dus­try’s punc­tu­al­ity tar­get, the Of­fice of Rail and Road said.

That is down 2.5 per­cent­age points on the pre­vi­ous 12 months and is the worst per­for­mance since De­cem­ber 2005.

Trains are record­ing as late if they ar­rive at their ter­mi­nat­ing sta­tion more than five min­utes be­hind sched­ule, or 10 min­utes for long-dis­tance jour­neys.
