Information about the reliability of journeys on motorways and ‘A’ roads managed by the Highways Agency in the year ending January 2013.
We have implemented some methodology changes this month to improve the quality of these statistics. As expected, the changes have resulted in a shift in the estimated level of journey time reliability and revisions to the historical national series. Further information on the methodology changes is provided in Section 2 of this release.
- in the year ending January 2013, provisional data show that 78% of journeys on the Highways Agency managed network were ‘on time’ - this is 0.6 percentage points lower than the previous year, ending December 2012
- provisional data show that 73.5% of journeys on the Highways Agency network during January 2013 were ‘on time’, down 7.3 percentage points from January 2012
