We are losing 4 Streetlites to Leicester shortly, so my guess is that the Mercedes will displace these first.

Oh ok, thanks bmmoboy! :D Sorry to ask another question but do you know if they will be from the the ‘64 plate’ or ‘65 plate’ batch?

I was informed that they would be StreetLites not StreetMax, so it will be the older 64 plate batch

Btw, I'm glad to see full-size single deckers are making a come back in Worcester. As a passenger I find midi-buses, like the Streetlites and Enviro 200s, far too compromised as these buses try to squeeze in full-size seating arrangements in a smaller bus. Making it a bit of squeeze for anyone sitting down!

Thanks for the update Adam! Am I correct in saying that one of the Mercedes will be put into ‘Salt Road’ livery to act as a spare for the Volvo’s on the 144?

That was certainly the plan at the time of the Salt Road launch events, but I think there may have been a change of plan since then.
