Farewell Volvo B10BLEs

Hi SMB315C,

I edited the Volvo B10BLE page as all Volvo B10BLEs under SBS Transit have been withdrawn from service since yesterday (26 July 2019). Please remember to delete the page called "Former Deployments of Volvo B10BLE" as I already edited it in the main "Volvo B10BLE" page. Thank you.

Re: 4 years' lifespan extension for certain Volvo B10M Mark IIs?

Greetings.

I would like to make an application for the Volvo B10M Mark II page to be temporarily unlocked, in order for me to make changes to the "Legend" section so as to include a notation for certain Mark IIs that were de-registered after 4 years of lifespan extension, totalling lifespan to 19 years.

The basis of this application lies in the legislative history of section 4(2)(b) of the Road Traffic (Public Service Vehicles) Rules ("the Rules"), which I understand to be the legal basis why public buses have a statutory lifespan of 17 years without extension. Its current version was in effect since 1st September 2003 and reads as follows:

"Except where the Registrar otherwise permits, no licence shall be renewed in respect of an omnibus which i) in a case where the omnibus licence is issued before 1 September 2003, is more than 15 years old on that date; or ii) in any other case, is more than 17 years old..."

From 1 April 1998 to 31 August 2003, section 4(2)(b) of the Rules (section 5(2)(b) before 30th September 1999) reads as follows:

"Except where the Registrar otherwise permits, no licence shall be renewed in respect of an omnibus which has been used for more than 15 years..."

Viewed in this light, based on the information from Registration Date of Buses page, there would have been another 40 Mark IIs (SBS1701E - SBS1740S) reaching the 15 years' statutory lifespan before 1 September 2003, as their lifespan expiry dates would have fallen on 9 June 2003, 6 July 2003 or 3 August 2003. For them to be able to remain on the roads until 2005 at the very least, it must have meant that they have been given a 2 years' lifespan extension by LTA at the point their lifespans were about to expire in 2003. Hence, the year 2005 was the second occasion they received another 2 years' lifespan extension, totalling the lifespan extension to 4 years. After all, the law itself did not limit the period or occasions which LTA could extend the lifespan for these buses, as can be seen from the case of Volvo Olympians.

I have set out the law and their application in full detail for your consideration. You may consider whether you agree with my analysis before ruling on my application.

Cheers.
