Bus to clear trees growth

First published in News

A DOUBLE-decker solution to the problem of overhanging trees on bus routes has been created.

A Tree Bus will patrol West Sussex roads in the next three weeks as it clears overgrown vegetation affecting buses and other high vehicles.

The former double-decker bus has been converted by Stagecoach and loaned to West Sussex County Council.

The top deck is used as a working platform where tree surgeons use specialist tools to cut back branches.

The debris is passed down through a chute to the deck below.

A list of roads affected by overhanging trees has been compiled by bus companies.

The team consists of up to three tree surgeons and a driver.

The work is funded from the county council’s highways budget.
