height Duple Metsec bodied Dennis Tridents, the first between December 1999

route 15 to The Peak, which has a height restriction under Mount
Kellett Road bridge. They are also used for other routes which require
a shorter length bus, including routes 9 and 14.
These buses were retired in 2017/18 and replaced with 60 lowheight
