Trains running late
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.
