Answer for District Line Trains to Richmond

Answered By: 
The Mayor

On both branches, scheduled frequencies are 7 trains per hour (8 1/2 minute intervals) Mon-Friday during peak hours, and 6 trains per hour (10 minute intervals) off-peak, Saturdays and Sundays.Due to the way that performance is monitored there is not currently any summary data for the Ealing Broadway branch. LU is currently working on the implementation of a new electronic data capture system that will allow a more detailed analysis of performance on individual line sections; this will be available from July 2007. LU Performance is monitored by the percentage of scheduled kilometres operated. The information for the District line and the Richmond branch is as follows: District line:Financial Period From To % AchievedP7 06/07 17/09/2006 14/10/2006 96.0%P8 06/07 15/10/2006 11/11/2006 95.4%P9 06/07 12/11/2006 09/12/2006 94.6%P10 06/07 10/12/2006 06/01/2007 96.5%P11 06/07 07/01/2007 03/02/2007 93.5%P12 06/07 04/02/2007 03/03/2007 95.7%P13 06/07 04/03/2007 31/03/2007 96.0%Total over period 95.4%District line - Richmond branch:Financial Period From To % AchievedP7 06/07 17/09/2006 14/10/2006 96.2%P8 06/07 15/10/2006 11/11/2006 96.9%P9 06/07 12/11/2006 09/12/2006 94.7%P10 06/07 10/12/2006 06/01/2007 96.3%P11 06/07 07/01/2007 03/02/2007 94.1%P12 06/07 04/02/2007 03/03/2007 97.0%P13 06/07 04/03/2007 31/03/2007 96.1%Total over period 95.9%
