Reliability of journeys on motorways and ‘A’ roads statistics between January to March 2014.
January to March 2014:
78.1% of journeys on the Highways Agency’s network were ‘on time’ in the year ending March 2014, a slight increase (of 0.3 percentage points) on the year ending December 2013.
Reliability fell for 12 consecutive months from a Marsh 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.
