CPT launches coach retrofit survey
CPT has published a short online survey on the five proposed Clean Air Zones and London’s ULEZ.
The survey is designed to help the industry during its ongoing discussions with key decision makers regarding the clean air plans. The questionnaire will also provide CPT supplier members with information that should help them better understand the emission reduction retrofit equipment requirements of the coach industry. Due to the current high costs of retrofit testing and approval, the greater amount of information regarding the more popular models that require retrofit will help these suppliers bring forward investment in the development of suitable solutions for the coach sector.
CPT’s CEO, Simon Posner, said: “Our primary concern is the current absence of an accredited retrofit solution for any coach, and CPT remains engaged in detailed discussions with LowCVP, the Energy Saving Trust and the Joint Air Quality Unit regarding this problem. While CPT continues to work on behalf of its membership, it is vitally important that we have good quality and reliable coach industry data to hand that will help further support our case when addressing these issues with local and national government and other stakeholders. I urge all CPT coach operator members and other affected coach companies to take a few moments to complete and return our short survey.”
Entitled ‘Coach Exhaust Retrofit for new Euro VI zones’, the survey is available to download and complete at https://goo.gl/fVpWDJ
Completed surveys should be sent to CPT’s Technical Executive, John Taylor ([email protected]) by no later than 27 April 2018.
