Thanks for sharing the link @deepam. Same story was shared by allaboutbelgaum.com and by Times of India, Bangalore Edition.Biswajit,
I am sharing your link of Jyoti here, for the benefit of our forum members:
I have heard even Mangalore Depot 2 has woman technicians.
I have personally seen woman workers-technicians checking buses at Kundapura Depot, when Hyderabad-Mangalore KSRTC ACC had entered for a tyre change.
Yes @deepam, its the same B9R ...+++++++++++++++
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.
I saw 3 major changes in Telsang Travels new B9R:
- 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.
- For the rear emergency exit; ladders are provided.
- 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.
