Blackpool benefits from new electric vehicle

Bradshaw Electric Vehicles has recently supplied Blackpool Council with an electric pedestrian controlled vehicle to help maintain street cleansing standards and service the litter bins within the Town Centre and Tourism Areas.

The pedestrian controlled vehicle will assist with the day-to-day work that is carried out to keep the town safe, including servicing duties, cleaning and rubbish collection. The vehicle replaces an older model that Blackpool Council previously had for a number of years and compliments the fleet of 5 Bradshaw supplied vehicles. Not only does the electric vehicle have a huge saving to the environment but it also allows easy access to areas more difficult to get to, and reduces the requirement of refuse collection vehicles and associated driving licenses for employees.

The pedestrian controlled PFB1500, with a payload of 1,500kg and a tow load of 2,000kg, has a steel mesh cage body with half drop down hinged sides, double rear doors and removable aluminium floor tray. Various options and chassis lengths are available.

Blackpool Council deliver around 150 services to approximately 142,000 Blackpool residents every single day and continue to work towards some big projects that will improve Blackpool.
