UK: Mechan has supplied two bogie turntables for installation by specialist contractor Trackwork at the Starr Gate tram depot which Volker Fitzpatrick is building at Blackpool in northwest England.

The turntables will be used when transferring bogies to the maintenance areas of the seafront depot, which is being built to accommodate the 16 Flexity 2 trams Bombardier is supplying as part of the modernisation of the only traditional tramway to have survived in the UK.
