Doubt that, it's easy to run weekends as they have no school work so the fleet is sitting around empty. To get a whole new fleet in and new drivers just to run a contract to then get arid of the same drivers and buses at the end of it since it's all week.

Imagine it'll be given to GNE personally but they'll then sub contract some runs out to the smaller operators where needed.
Possible be the same as during the 14 day metro replacement. Gne and other routes

GNE could do it via 6167-6175

Say 90 min round trip, 12 min frequency = 8 vehicles so 6167-6176
Remember 6177 & 78 will be in the fray by then as well.

They won’t be keeping buses spare for 10 months ready for this - the winning operator will require a dedicated fleet of buses (at least 25 for a PVR of 22) to be acquired purely for this contract.

True, of course the weekday 'pressure' will coincide with school contracts as well. In addition we don't know where we will be with covid either....
Thinking about it. It would have to be a shared contract. No company could run it for them amount of days. Gne got handed the 14 day metro replacement back in February. Jh and Stanley had to come in to help. Gne don't have the deckers to handle (weekends yes I could understand) but during the week with scholars is a bit impossible

And it is Euro 6 thing comes in at Newcastle which will make it harder. 

I think Euro 5 thing will be nearly impossible to do, GNE/ST & JH probs won't have enough not to mention drivers.

It's between South Shields and Pelaw so it's not really relevant here the LEZ.

Yeh, but GNE need the euro 6 vehciles, + the Euro 5 for other depots + a PVR of 25, which is more than any one Brand I believe ever, I doubt it will be able to be done, unless another Go-Ahead company lends some vehicles from maybe down london which are being replaced

It goes without saying, that something from outside the region will be needed.
Permanent or otherwise.
