延长

yáncháng - delay, prolong

I left work earlier so I could catch a train to Oxford that left an hour earlier, but due to delays, I ended up reaching Oxford an hour after the train should have. I'm not sure that this is the correct Chinese word for this kind of delay, but it was always on my Smart.fm and I kept getting it wrong.
