Intelligent Transport has reported that Ubitricity, Westminster City Council and Siemens have unveiled the UK’s first avenue that has been fully converted to cater for electric vehicle (EV) charging. The project, coined ‘Electric Avenue, W9’, has converted 24 lampposts into EV charge points using existing city infrastructure. Residents can now charge EVs at various locations along Sutherland Avenue in London, with a further two adjoining roads due to be completed in the coming weeks. Westminster has seen a 40 per cent growth in EVs charged in the borough during 2019.

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.
