star this property answer text <p>During the period between 13 August 2018 (from whence a small number of Leeds services were removed from the timetable) until 1 February 2019 (Monday to Friday only), LNER operated the full timetable on the Leeds to London (both directions) route on 65 of the 123 days. This means that on the other 58, there was at least 1 cancellation of either a Leeds to London or London to Leeds service.</p><p> </p><p>This represents an improvement in operating the full timetable on that route from 31% (in the previous 21 May to 10 August 2018 period) to 53%.</p><p> </p><p>Additionally, the overall number of cancellations halved after implementing the timetable with planned cancellations meaning a more robust service offer for passengers. Between May and July 2018 so called TOC-on-Self cancellations (ie those cancellations within LNER’s control versus external factors) across all LNER services were averaging 89 per period, whilst cancellations between August 2018 and February 2019 were reduced to an average of 44 per period. The provision of extra resilience by implementing the pre-planned cancellations is ensuring a more robust and predictable service for passengers.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Under sections 59 and 60 of the New Roads and Street Works Act 1991, highway authorities have a general duty to co-ordinate all street and road works on their networks and statutory undertakers have a general duty to use their best endeavours to co-operate with such actions. A Code of Practice entitled ‘Code of Practice for the Co-ordination of Street Works and Works for Road Purposes and Related Matters’ supports the delivery of these obligations. It can be found at:</p><p><a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/publications/street-works-co-ordination" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/street-works-co-ordination</a>.</p><p>The Traffic Management Act 2004 enables highway authorities to manage works proactively on the highway by operating a street works permit scheme, where a permit to undertake works needs to be approved prior to those works taking place. Over 65% of local highway authorities in England operate a permit scheme and the Government has requested that the remaining highway authorities introduce schemes.</p><p>The Department is funding the £10m Street Manager project to improve the way that information on works is exchanged and how data is collected and shared. The project will enable better co-ordination and generate data which can be used to inform the public about planned and live works.</p>

This level of disruption also impacted East Coast services (being operated by Virgin Trains East Coast), and was the underlying cause of the worsening performance. LNER also experienced reliability issues due to the age of their rolling stock whilst they await the introduction of the Azuma Intercity Express Trains.</p><p> </p><p>When LNER commenced operations on 24 June 2018, the DfT worked with the operator to give passengers more certainty of the services running. The decision was taken to remove a small number of Leeds services from 13 August 2018. This provided LNER with a spare train (for use if one breaks down) to prevent further trains being cancelled, and additional time in maintenance depots.</p><p> </p><p>We are monitoring the situation closely and working with LNER to reinstate the pre-planned cancellations as quickly as possible, but sufficient resilience is not likely until there are new Azuma trains in service later this year.</p>
