Station charge point
Gleneagles Railway Station is set to get a free electric car charging point.
The facility will be available to parking at the Strath transport hub.
A complete charge from the 22kW supplies will take around four hours, almost double the time home charging points take.
Ian McConnell, ScotRail’s programmes and transformation director, said: “We’re building the best railway Scotland has ever had, and improved facilities for customers at our stations is a huge part of this.
“These additions to our car parks, combined with longer trains, more seats and better services, will all help us to achieve our aim of reducing the carbon footprint from door to door.”
Rebecca Roper, community manager at ChargePlace Scotland, added: “We are delighted to welcome the new ScotRail Alliance charge points onto the growing ChargePlace Scotland network.
“The addition of these charge points presents the opportunity for greener commuting and travel, and also provides more recharging options at convenient locations for the increasing number of electric vehicles on Scotland’s roads.”
It is hoped the new charging point will be up and running by the end of the year.
