P-coded cancellations

Periodic (4-weekly) statistics on resource availability shortage pre-cancellations (i.e. changes to train services caused by non-availability of staff or rolling stock) that are included in a revised timetable, and therefore may not be appearing in operators’ cancellations scores.

Operators have been providing ORR with the number of resource availability shortage “P*-coded” pre-cancellations since railway period 11 (8 January 2023 to 4 February 2023). The factsheet and data table present data for both on the day cancellations and resource availability shortage “P*-coded” pre-cancellations by cause for each operator.

For information on any revisions, please see our Revisions log.

More passenger rail performance data on punctuality, reliability and causes of delay are available on our passenger rail performance page.
