COMMUTERS boarding a train at Dalmuir have a 42.4 per cent chance it will be late, according to a new website.

Every UK rail station has been assessed to find the prospects of travelling on time.

The Train Lateness Tool runs a search of 2,566 UK stops with punctuality figures from January 2019 to January 2020.

Dalmuir, which is one of the UK’s busiest stations, ranks 113th worst in this list for lateness.

At Clydebank, there’s a 29.4 per cent chance the train will be late, 35.6 per cent at Yoker, 37.9 per cent at Singer, 39.1 per cent at Kilpatrick and 40.5 per cent at Drumry.

The town’s MP Martin Docherty-Hughes said: “The service provided by Abellio has fallen well short of the standards expected which is why the Scottish Government has acted to end the Abellio-Scotrail contract.

“Delayed and cancelled trains cause misery for commuters in West Dunbartonshire and whoever takes over the rail franchise must do better.

“However, according to the industry regulator, the problems with our trains are mostly caused by faults on the track infrastructure run by Network Rail on behalf of the UK Government.

“It’s about time full powers over our railways were devolved to Holyrood so we can deliver the reliable train services that commuters in Scotland deserve.”

RotaCloud, who produced the online tool, concluded more than a third of all trains are late. They based their figures on Network Rail stats about any delays.

ScotRail – which only consider a train late if it is more than five minutes behind schedule – said RotaCloud’s calculations don’t match how they measure performance.

A spokesman said: “Everyone across Scotland’s railway is working flat out for our customers and the third consecutive period of improvement for trains running on time is another step forward as we deliver the service they expect and deserve. Customer satisfaction has soared, punctuality continues to improve, and we are operating the best new train in Britain.”
