New double deckers for Warrington

Network Warrington has taken delivery of three, low floor Volvo B7TL double-deck buses to operate on its Hatton and Gorse Covert routes, where school loadings are particularly heavy.

"We took a decision in April 2011 to convert the entire local bus network to low floor entry," explains David Squire, Warrington managing director. "However, we then had a requirement to provide additional capacity on some of our peak routes".

"Having looked around at various options we chose the proven Volvo B7TL chassis with Alexander ALX400 body," he continues. "We acquired the buses from Volvo Bus, and used Volvo Finance as their 1-2-3 deal was particularly attractive".

In total, Network Warrington purchased three Volvo B7TL's, all of which have been extensively refurbished, including centre door conversion and DDA entry ramp. The seats have been re-trimmed and the vehicles have also been repainted and LED blinds have been added.
