A specialist street washing van procured by municipal contractor Biffa is helping Arun District Council to keep its streets spark­ling.

The customised Ford Transit, supplied and adapted by Bristol Street Motors, is fitted with high-pressure, hot water washing equipment that cleans street surfaces.

The single-manned cleansing van is also being used to remove chewing gum deposits and graffiti.

The van contains a Karcher pressure washer, run off a Kubota auxiliary diesel engine, which can spray water or steam. Its 2,000 litre on-board water tank can work for around an hour, and up to 100sq m can be cleaned each day in large, heavily soiled precinct areas.
