Employees 'losing five days a year' as result of travel disruption

09 Jan 2020

A survey carried out by the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) has suggested that UK workers are losing five days per year as a result of travel delays.

The CBI polled 2,000 people, and found that employees lose, on average, 2.7 hours a week due to travel disruption and delays. According to the business group, this totals 125 hours, or five days, over the course of a working year.

The CBI is calling for the government to improve transport infrastructure across the UK, and make commuting greener and more affordable for communities across the country.

'Encountering delay and disruption far too often, employees up and down the UK want a cheaper, greener and more reliable commute,' said Matthew Fell, Chief UK Policy Director at the CBI.

'This will only be achieved by business and the government working together to invest and deliver the right infrastructure, and make better use of existing capacity on our networks – from a plan for a more accountable rail system to expanding smart ticketing and promoting flexible working.'
