%VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%Network Rail (NR) "failed to deliver" on major commuter and long-distance route punctuality last year, with many thousands more late trains than there should have been, rail regulators said today.

Committed to deliver average punctuality levels of 92% on long-distance passenger services in 2013/14, NR "fell significantly short" with a figure of 86.9%, the Office of Rail Regulation (ORR) said.
