Punctuality stuck below 90% – new PPM stats

Railway punctuality was at 88.2% during Period 10, according to monthly performance data released today by Network Rail.

The data covers the period from 9 December 2012 to 5 January 2013.

It is up from 85.3% for period 9, but is lower than the 88.8% recorded in the same period last year.

The moving annual average is now at 91.4%.

The franchise with the best PPM in period 10 was c2c Rail with 98%. c2c Rail also had the highest MAA at 97.5% - a new UK record for rail punctuality. The poorest performing franchise was Virgin with 75.8% PPM and an MAA at 85.7%.

East Coast and London Midland both also recorded PPM figures for period 10 in the 70-80% region, far below target.

Network Rail highlighted that severe weather conditions caused disruption to a number of operators during this period.

In terms of right time performance – trains arriving early or within 59 seconds of schedule – the national PPM was at 63.8%. MAA for this measure is at 69.1%. Network Rail has recently begun to publish these figures in a move to increase transparency.
