The ABC has a story on issues ACTION is having with 26 new Steer-tag buses. (Bus spotters please send in to firstname.lastname@example.org)
Tom Elliott from the Department of Territory and Municipal Services says ACTION is changing some routes and widening corners to accommodate the vehicles.
“There’s a couple of places in the Territory where the buses don’t safely run on the road,” he said.
“We’re either doing a diversion around those at the moment, or we’re actually refitting the road. In most cases that’s a pretty minor piece of construction work for a curb or a gutter, just where the turn of the bus is a bit unsafe.”
These buses are to replace the increasingly aged bendy buses. In their defence big buses like this aren’t intended to be pootling around the suburbs.
