Council goes green

WORCESTER City Council is using two environmentally friendly vans to keep its streets clean.

It has taken on two electric Mega vans which can reach speeds of up to 40mph from 12 48v lead-gel batteries. Worcester City’s cabinet member for keeping the city ‘clean, green and safe’, Derek Prodger said: ‘It is a clear case of leading by example. Ours is a duty to protect the environment and that is our clear priority.’

Peter Leivers, general manager of Mega supplier Aixam Mega, said: ‘This is the ideal type of operation for the electric Mega. It is clean, quiet and emission free in operation, just what is needed in a busy city centre environment.’
