The formal warning included the need to constantly monitor maintenance arrangements and tighten them where evidence indicated concerns and a second need to ensure that sophisticated managements systems do not remove the ability for direct communication.

In addition a review of transport management arrangements will also be conducted and the outcome provided to the Traffic Commissioner for Scotland by 31 May 2019 for agreement.

The TC took no regulatory action against the licence, and made no adverse findings in relation to any transport manager.

The TC also noted that all operators of ADL Enviro300 vehicles are put on notice of the likelihood of rear spring bolt failures and called upon to review maintenance arrangements.

The DVSA was also requested to review guidance on defects that appear to indicate a potential failure in the vehicle’s design or manufacturer.
