Electric Buses on 470 and 433 Bus Routes

THE SPECS
The total battery capacity on the vehicle is 328kW. The Gemilang-bodied, BYD electric chassis buses use around 80kW per hour; however, the vehicle also regenerates approximately 30-40 per cent of its battery capacity through braking, depending on traffic conditions.

ELECTRIC BUS ROUTES
The following routes have been chosen due to their close proximity to Leichhardt depot, so that operations and performance can be closely monitored during the trial:
* Route 389 – Bondi Junction to Pyrmont
* Route 431 – Glebe Point to City (Martin Place)
* Route 433 – Balmain to Railway Square
* Route 447 – Lilyfield to Leichhardt Marketplace (loop service)
* Route 470 – Lilyfield to City (Martin Place)

Westconnex forces Swadlings to move

"“We opened for trade in St Peters on the seventh,” says Swadling, with a touch of understandable pride. It took three weeks of almost constant work: the hardware store and shed racks were ready, but none of the outside racks had been built, so Swadlings used the mill space to store all the timber and unpacked it over January/February as they built the sheds. “We put our fastest movers in the first shed, our second-fastest in the second shed and the slower-moving ones in the last shed we built,” says Swadling.
Regular customers weren’t aware of the juggle – orders were filled as usual and even special order moulding profiles were cut at the family’s other store in Annandale. The St Peters milling facility will soon be operating, which will improve the already quick service..."
