The burst main and subsequent mudslip in Croydon that put five railway lines out of action in early August “severely affected” train operator Southern’s performance, Network Rail has said.
Data released today by Network Rail for the period from 24 July to 20 August showed that Southern’s punctuality was just 88.8%, compared to 94.5% for the same period last year.
The incident impacted services on the 1 August and 2 August, Network Rail said.
