New performance figures show that Greater Anglia remains one of the best train companies in the country when it comes to reliability.

Nearly 96% of its trains ran on time during the last four-week period ending in mid October - meaning that over the year the average figure is 94.4%.

That continues the trend that was set as the company moved out of lockdown with an entirely new fleet of trains.

Greater Anglia has also won a number of industry awards and the number of passengers, especially on non-commuter trains, is now approaching pre-pandemic levels.

Performance for the last four-week period (ending 14 October) saw punctuality across the Greater Anglia network averaging 95.9% - using the long-standing public performance measure (PPM), which measures arrival times at destination stations for each service.

As a result, the GA moving annual average PPM figure is now at 94.4% - continuing the historically high results being delivered by the train operator over the last three and a half years.

Marks Tey to Sudbury was one of the best performing routes with more than 98% of trains on time.

Intercity services from London to Ipswich, Colchester, Manningtree and Stowmarket averaged 94.5%.

The lowest figures for services from Suffolk were trains to Cambridge and Peterborough - but their reliability figures were still above 90%.

Jamie Burles, Managing Director, Greater Anglia said: “We’re pleased to be consistently delivering high levels of punctuality for our customers and stakeholders in East Anglia.

"We are fully focused on keeping up these very high standards of performance, to match the transformation of the journey experience brought by our new trains, with their greater comfort, better facilities (including plug/USB points and wifi), increased seating capacity and better accessibility.”
