Slimline truck for Jersey streets

Jul 22, 2011
The island of Jersey has width restrictions so White & Company's new vehicle had to go on a diet.

UVB has recently delivered the first of six MAN vehicles to Whites, one of which has been put on a diet to meet the width restrictions on the island of Jersey.  The maximum width of a vehicle on the island is 2300cm so UVB had to reduce the overall width by around 5 inches to meet the regulations.  “Over the years we have had to devise all kinds of methods to reduce the width of a vehicle for use in the Channel Islands,” said Terry Sinnott from UVB. “This time we managed to achieve the effect by reducing the spread of the wheel arches and making the step smaller.  We then built the body of the vehicle to fit.”

The vehicle is plated at 10 tonnes and holds 43cbm. Ian Palmer, MD of Whites, was impressed with his new acquisition.  ”It is impossibly pretty for a commercial vehicle,” he said.

 The new White's truck in Jersey has been slimmed down by five inches to meet regulations.
