The wettest winter for almost 250 years with the network experiencing severe flooding, landslips and line closures, tested the rail industrys resilience during a difficult period 12.

Punctuality on the railways reached 87.1% during period 12, according to monthly performance data released today by Network Rail. The data for Britain’s train services covers the period from 2 February 2014 – 1 March 2014. This compares to 91.1% for the same period last year. The moving annual average is now at 89.9%

During the period, another wave of severe storms, very strong winds and torrential rainfall caused further substantial damage to the rail network. Since December, Network Rail has had an army of engineers and maintenance staff out on the ground dealing with over 500 fallen trees blocking lines, 285 flooded sites and 73 landslips or washouts with the sole aim of getting the lines cleared as quickly as possible and trains moving

Our projection for performance on exiting CP4 has been further eroded as a result of the weather over the last few months.
