Sta­tion charge point

Strathearn Herald - - INTIMATIONS -

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.
