Nevertheless, overrunning engineering work following the Bank Holiday affected Mainline and Rural services and I am sorry for the problems this caused our customers. Working with our colleagues at Network Rail, we are determined that the improvement works programme going forward will be planned and delivered robustly to ensure the needs of our customers are prioritised and engineering works completed on-time."
