Punctual Greater Anglia trains record top stats
12:00pm Sunday 21st October 2012 in News
TRAIN operator Greater Anglia has recorded the highest rate of on time trains since 2004.
The 95.03 per cent was recorded during the four-week period ending October 13.
It is the highest figure since the East Anglia franchise structure was introduced in 2004 and is the first time a franchise scored more than 95 per cent in a single period.
The results relate to the service between London Liverpool Street and Norwich.
Elsewhere, services on the rural routes in Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire saw punctuality of 94 per cent.
Ruud Haket, managing director of Greater Anglia, said: “I am delighted that over 95 per cent of Greater Anglia trains arrived on time for the past four weeks, achieving our best-ever levels of punctuality and improving still further on the excellent performance we delivered over the Olympics and Paralympics Games.
“We are not complacent, however, and there remains more work to do in delivering consistent levels of train service performance for our customers across London and East Anglia, and we will continue to work with our colleagues at Network Rail, focusing on further improvement.”
