Today morning i saw that SVR B11R which left bangalore to Vizag at 3 PM yesterday was still near TP gudem at 11:30 AM (4 hrs + delay), this bus normally reaches vizag around 12 pm and starts return journey at 2 PM.Same with Kesineni,SRS and VRL schedules which also starts return journey around 2 PM.Imagine the stress for drivers who drive continuously for 2200 KMs.

I saw 3 major changes in Telsang Travels new B9R:
  1. As you had observed the battery is moved to the back - Yes this should have been done at the beginning by Volvo India, atleast now they have implemented.
  2. For the rear emergency exit; ladders are provided.
  3. Then the front [driver and co-driver] the seat belt loop was attached to the frame body chassis. However now this is fitted to the inner back area - making it safer - the external body damage has lesser impact to the seat belt arrangement. In earlier version, if there was any frontal left or right impact - the seat belt tensioner getting damaged and causing more damage to the driver or co-driver.

From Biswajit Gallery: I found this to be sleeper bus operating from Bangalore to Kolhapur.

Unfortunate to see this accident. It would be really challenging to pull this bus from the 20 feet. Konduskar would incur heavy expenses, to pull this up apart from the repair cost.
