Important travel information - Hunts Cross line

Train services between Hunts Cross and Liverpool Central are currently suspended due to a cable fault causing the power supply to the third rail to be severely reduced.

Performance Information


On this page you will find information about the punctuality performance of Merseyrail services.

Train services are measured against the following:

Public Performance Measure (PPM)

This is the percentage of trains that cover their full journey length and arrive at their final destination within five minutes of the booked time measured against the planned timetable. If a train is cancelled or does not call at all of the scheduled stations (semi-fast trains) it will count as a PPM failure. 

Refunds and compensation for season ticket holders affected by delays and cancellations is based on the PPM figure for the period that the season ticket is valid. For more information please click here. 

On Time Figures

On Time figures are based on the percentage of train services that have run arriving within 59 seconds of the planned timetable. This excludes cancelled services.

MAA - Is Moving Annual Average and represents the score over the last 13 periods / year. 

In the sections below you will find punctuality at all recorded station stops for the four weeks ending Saturday 22 June 2019 (Period 3).
