Proportion of journeys that are ‘on time’ on Highways Agency motorways and ‘A’ roads in England
In the year ending March 2015:
- 78.7% of journeys on the Highways Agency’s network were ‘on time’, a 0.1 percentage point increase on the year ending December 2014.
Recent trends are:
- reliability fell for 12 consecutive months from a March 2012 peak of 81.5%. Reliability has been broadly stable since March 2013.
- the recent stabilisation of reliability levels is believed to mostly 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.
