Its that time again when we take a look at the latest performance statistics for Manchester Metrolink. The latest period being reviewed is period 10 which took place between 9th December 2019 and 4th January 2020 and shows an increase in punctuality but a small fall in reliability.
The overall punctuality figure (trams departing less than two minutes late) has increased to 89.9% (previous period 89.25%) while the reliability (planned miles operated) has fallen from 99.1% to 98.7%. 0.95% of all journeys were cancelled and 0.48% of all planned journeys ran short.
On the punctuality the highest performing line was the Altrincham line (95.2%) with the Eccles line at the other end of the scale (85.7%). Meanwhile, the various lines on reliability were all around the same figure with the Bury line seeing 99.2% and the Ashton-under-Lyne and East Didsbury lines down at 98.3%.
During this period amongst the issues causing disruption were:
* Vehicle blocking tracks (13th December, 31st December, 1st January)
* Driver availability (22nd December, 24th December, 26th December, 29th December, 31st December)
* Tram fault (10th December, 19th December, 26th December)
