The town of Warrington has moved a step closer to achieving its target of being the first town in the UK with an all-electric bus fleet. Warrington Borough Council recently gave the go-ahead for a new electricity substation adjoining Warrington’s Own Buses’ new depot, which is being built on a new site on the Warrington Trading Estate, and which will be essential to the creation of an all-electric depot.

Work on the £10 million new depot is said to be progressing well, with the plan to replace Warrington’s Own Buses’ fleet with 120 new electric buses expected to start towards the end of next year.
