The Department for Transport has announced a £400 million infrastructure investment in rapid charging points for electric vehicles. The first £70 million investment will be allocated to help build 3000 charge points, more than doubling the number across the UK by 2024. The Department for Transport have said these rapid charge points can “recharge a family car in as little as 20 minutes” compared to existing technologies which can take 40 minutes. The announcement adds to the £1.5 billion allocated by the Government to increase the uptake of electric and cleaner vehicles.

The Transport Knowledge Hub is a fantastic resource and I’m really excited about the opportunity to explore how we can maximise its use among transport stakeholders. In the South East Midlands, investing in local transport infrastructure has unlocked significant economic growth. The Hub offers a formal framework for sharing expertise with decision makers around the UK, as well as learning from the experience of others. This will enable more investment to be directed towards  local and sustainable forms of transport.
