EV CHARGING STATIONS EXPANDING IN QUEENSLAND
Twenty-four electric vehicle (EV) charging stations will be built in Western Queensland as construction begins in Phase 3 of the State Government’s $2.74 million inland network rollout.
The first charger of the Phase 3 rollout has started in Kingaroy and will be followed by Longreach, Barcaldine, Blackall, Charleville, Miles and Stanthorpe.
There are now more than 10,000 registered electric vehicles in Queensland.
Charging stations are currently positioned in 31 locations and are expanding by a further 24 across the interior of the state to make travelling with an EV easier.
Eventually, the rollout would take the Electric Super Highway up to 5,400km long thought to be the largest network in one jurisdiction in the world.
