  • Costings for the dismantling of all axles and replacing the axle and final drive bearings, (once identified)
  • NDT of welds and replacement of centre axle liners
  • Updated costings for the supply and fitting of new tyres
Costings for the final part of this project should be clarified before the end of February 2023.
