Warrnambool commuters have enjoyed their most punctual train service in six-and-a-half years.
The latest performance figures show 92.9 per cent of Warrnambool line trains arrived at their destination on time during the month of April.
This is the highest punctuality result since October 2011.
The number of services arriving on time has jumped 8.7 per cent since February, and follow a drop in performance in March, which V/Line attributes to repairs on a three km section of the line following the St Patrick’s Day fires.
Warrnambool line trains also exceeded the 96 per cent reliability target for April, with 99.1 per cent of services delivered for the month.
V/Line CEO James Pinder said a significant amount of work and investment had gone into achieving these results.
“Performance is now back to a level our passengers deserve and expect,” he said.
“This is a great result and follows a huge amount of work on the line, including level crossing upgrades, improving the reliability of the train fleet, reducing the impact of track faults and our recovery response from the recent fires”.
Next month’s performance figures may be impacted by the region’s recent weather conditions, with Friday’s 9:24am Warrnambool to Melbourne train replaced by road coaches due to a power cable fault.
The morning Melbourne to Warrnambool train was also impacted, with coaches replacing trains after terminating in Camperdown.
