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.

A number of Irisbuses and Scania L94s have had their floors re-laid. The NO STANDING AREA at the front and rear doors and the wheelchair bays are the most noticeable areas where the change has taken place.

Buses known to have received new floors are:

305 307 308 314 316 317 318 319
322 326 327# 330# 336 337^ 341 342 345 352 353 354 355 356 358 359 363 364 369 372* 373*

# floor refurbishment possibly undertaken previously
^ rear door area not re-laid
* seating is 45
(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.


Update: most of the buses have now had the seating modified. Those which haven't, or haven't been sighted, include:

360 368 369 370 372 373
