Essex: Most trains hit time targets
4:00pm Wednesday 16th July 2014 in News
NINE out of ten mainline trains in north Essex arrived on time last month.
Greater Anglia scored 89.9 per cent punctuality on the line during the four-week period ending on June 21.
Services meet punctuality targets if they arrive within five minutes of their scheduled time, or ten minutes for long-distance intercity routes.
A power fault in Chelmsford on June 17, and signalling problems at Liverpool Street the following day, caused significant delays for commuters.
Greater Anglia managing director Jamie Burles said: “Although train service performance in the most recent four-week period continued above the national average, I am sorry that services were disrupted on certain days during this time.”
