PPM falls to 92.1%

Train performance has dropped slightly to 92.1% for period 7, new figures from Network Rail show. 

This covers punctuality from September 15 to October 12 and compares to 92.3% for the same period in the previous year. PPM for period 6 this year was also 92.3%. 

The moving annual average (MAA) is now at 90.7%. 

The best performing franchise was c2c Rail at 97.8%, whose MAA is still top at 97.2%. 

The worst PPM was First Transpennine Express, with 87.8%, and East Coast’s MAA is lowest again at 82.8%. 

For Transpennine Express poor PPM results were caused by a continued industrial dispute compounded by a signalling fault at Selby, Network Rail reported. 

Delays attributable to Network Rail accounted for 60% of total delays during the period.
