TP3001 (950 to QEII Medical Centre) and TP1256 (Red CAT), following a fair amount of forward and reverse manoeuvring, after a minor collision (or scrape) on William St after Murray St around 8:40 am, 26 Feb 2019. I did not witness the moment of collision, only the manoeuvring afterwards which caused some delay for southbound traffic.

TP3001 took damage (cracked glass) to the window behind its rear door; not sure about TP1256.

Such a shame that a unique and only MAN artic is damaged in such a minor accident with a bus doing CAT services but hopefully it will be repaired and returned to normal service.

In this case, is the fact that 3001 has an AOA a good or a bad thing?

Now Apart that it has a new AOA in the aftermath, could this be the reason why TP3001's had its steering wheel changed?

After recovering from how stupid this question is...

No. It was not changed because of the minor collision. Honestly, how the hell do you think a very minor collision affects a steering wheel? I'm baffled.

Cheers! :wink:
