Tech­ni­cal hitch hits city car charg­ing points

Perthshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

Perth and Kin­ross Coun­cil has con­firmed that a num­ber of their city cen­tre elec­tric car charg­ing ports in Perth are out of or­der.

The lo­cal au­thor­ity has ad­mit­ted the West Mill Street spa­ces are cur­rently non-op­er­a­tional, how­ever the charg­ing spa­ces will be back in work­ing con­di­tion “as soon as pos­si­ble”.

A Perth and Kin­ross Coun­cil spokesper­son said: “The elec­tric car charg­ing spa­ces at West Mill Street car park are not cur­rently op­er­a­tional, due to some tech­ni­cal is­sues.

“We have been in touch with the spe­cial­ist con­trac­tor in­volved who has un­der­taken a site visit last week. We are cur­rently await­ing the re­port from the con­trac­tor and aim to have the spa­ces op­er­a­tional as soon as pos­si­ble.”

The coun­cil has en­cour­aged driv­ers of elec­tric cars to use the other charg­ing ports in the city cen­tre.

There are four at Canal Street’s multi-storey car park and four at the South Inch car park which are in work­ing or­der, as well as ports at the Fri­ar­ton de­pot and Brox­den park and ride.
