• Go-Ahead Northern, the North-East's biggest bus firm, has placed a Lim order for 40 Wright-bodied Dennis Darts. The Gateshead-based operator has chosen the Handybus body, which features Alusuissedesigned aluminium extrusions.
Ballymena-based Robert Wright & Son launched the Handybus body in 1990.
This is the body's biggest order to date.
"We visited the Wright factory and examined buses in build," says Go-Ahead Northern commercial director Chris Mayes. "The extrusions and panelwork are all designed for ease of repair, an important feature on hard-worked urban buses."
