Train punctuality reaches 12-year low amid weather and timetable chaos
One in seven trains missed target of arriving within five minutes of scheduled time
The punctuality of Britain’s trains has reached a 12-year low amid disruption caused by extreme weather and timetable changes, according to “damning” statistics that emerged as the government weighs up launching a full-blown rail review.
One in seven trains missed the industry’s target of arriving within five minutes of their scheduled time – or 10 minutes on long-distance services – in the year to 18 August, according to figures from the Office of Road and Rail (ORR).
