In the year ending June 2014, 78.2% of journeys on the Highways Agency’s network were ‘on time’, similar to the year ending March 2014.
For longer-term trends:
- reliability fell for 12 consecutive months from a March 2012 peak of 81.5%
- reliability has been mostly stable since March 2013, with small increases in December 2013 and January 2014
- the recent stabilisation of reliability levels may relate to a combination of improved weather conditions, particularly less rain, and increases in traffic on motorways and rural ‘A’ roads, relative to the previous year
