Following the completion of DDA / PSVAR modifications on all vehicles, the three DDA float/reserve vehicles (4896, 4897 and 4898) have been absorbed into the main service fleet at Riverside. To reduce the fleet strength towards a lower spare vehicle percentage in the North Division, these three Volvo B10BLEs being absorbed into the main fleet at Riverside has released three further Volvo B10BLEs (4903, 4906 and 4907) to Deptford Depot, allowing the withdrawal of younger (albeit less reliable), more expensive to maintain, Wright Cadet bodied DAF SB120s from the fleet.
