3rd month C2C Fenchurch Street trains top league for running on time

Rail bosses have scored a ‘hat trick’ of getting trains running on time for three months in a row on the Fenchurch Street network.

Train operator C2C reached the top of the ‘national punctuality’ table for the third month in a row for commuter services through East London and South Essex, according to figures covering February to April.

It managed 96.3 per cent of its trains on schedule between Fenchurch Street in the City, Tilbury and Shoeburyness on the Essex coast.

The company also holds the UK records for the highest annual punctuality at 96.7 per cent for any four-week period at 98.8 per cent.
