S5W-12486: Elaine Smith (Central Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 7 November 2017

To ask the Scottish Government how many (a) peak and (b) off-peakĀ train services have skippedĀ calling at Coatbridge Sunnyside in each of the last six months, broken down by reason.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 21 November 2017

Over the last six periods (that is, Period 3-Period 8 inclusive) the percentage of trains which have skip-stopped at Coatbridge Sunnyside is 1 percent.

The Scottish Government does not hold detailed information as to how many peak and off-peak train services have skipped calling at Coatbridge Sunnyside in each of the last six months, and broken down by reason.

A train that runs skip-stop results in a part-cancellation; therefore, ScotRail provide Transport Scotland with the information at Sector level and these are monitored against the specified benchmarks contained in the Franchise Agreement.
