Floor Refurbishments
« on: February 03, 2018, 12:54:10 PM »
Last year TCCS signed a contract with Wales Bus & Body Repair (in Sydney) for ongoing bus floor repairs.

I have now noticed a number of Irisbuses and Scania L94s with repaired floors.

The NO STANDING AREA at the front door and the wheelchair bays are the most obvious areas where the change is noticed.

Buses known to have received new floors are:

305 314 316 317 318 319
322 326 342 345 353* 356 358 359 363* 364 369 373

* seating reduced to 44
(will be updated as further sightings occur)

To further complicate matters - remember back in 2016 when one modesty panel was removed from the Scania L94s due to lack of legroom?

Seats on the off side are closer to the longitudinal flip up seats from memory, so the little legroom there is was further reduced with the installation of the modesty panel.

They're making a comeback. 363 on return from a floor upgrade has the offside panel re-installed and one flip-up seat removed to make room. Not sure whether Wales or the ACTION workshops did it. There may be others as well - possibly 355.

Update: bus with reduced seating, but not floor refurbishment -

367
