In February Rotala PLC placed a £29m order with Wrightbus of Northern Ireland for 163 brand new vehicles to be delivered throughout 2020. The order includes a further 128 Streetdeck double-deckers for the Diamond Bus North West business, to replace 125 vehicles leased from First Group when Rotala purchased First’s Bolton operation in August 2019. Four of the new Streetdecks have been allocated to Rotala subsidiary Preston Bus, numbered 40716 to 40719, and entered service following an unveiling ceremony on 6th July.
