Answered By: 
The Mayor

For the most recent four-week period which we have data available, between September 14 and October 11, on average trains ran between Oxford Circus and West Ruislip every nine minutes 52 seconds, rather than every eight minutes as scheduled.

There have unfortunately been a few challenging days on the Central line recently caused by issues with the fleet of trains, as well as some rare, unrelated incidents with track circuits and signalling faults. LU has a full programme of reliability initiatives underway which will support a significant improvement in the performance of the Central line fleet.

More broadly, LU remains on target to reduce delays on the Underground by 30 per cent by 2015.
