METRO-CAMMELL Weymann's Metrobus will not be affected by the corrosion problems which have hit some Scania-based Metropolitans, the company assured CM this week.
Some early Metropolitans — built with steel-framed bodies — have suffered from serious corrosion and are being given emergency Ziebart treatment to try to contain the problem. MCW assured us that the problem has now been overcome, and that the few steel lower sections on Metrobus bodies are being powder-coated before assembly. Most of the Metrobus's framework is made from aluminium.
The only major areas of steel on Metrobus are the topdeck floor and roof.
