Station on track to fit electric car points
Electric car charging points are to be installed at Airdrie station in“the coming weeks”.
The railway hub car park is among 50 across Scotland where the free facilities are being put in place by Scotrail Alliance, totalling 100 spaces.
A complete charge from the 22kw supply will typically take around four hours, which railway officials say is“twice as fast as plugging in at home”.
Drivers of electric vehicles will need a valid ChargePlace Scotland card to activate the charger.
Scotrail Alliance programmes and transformation director Ian McConnell said:“We are building the best railway Scotland has ever had, and improved facilities for customers at our stations is a huge part of this.”
Rebecca Roper of ChargePlace Scotland added: “The addition of these charge points presents the opportunity for greener travel, and also provides more recharging options for the increasing number of electric vehicles on Scotland’s roads.”
