Edinburgh to put EV chargers in road to cut pavement clutter

ELECTRIC VEHICLES

Andrew Forster

The City of Edinburgh Council plans to install electric vehicle charging points in the carriageway rather than on the footway, to ensure they don’t obstruct pedestrian movement.

The council is drawing up plans to install the first tranche of on-street EV charging points in the city, having recently been awarded a £2.2m grant from Transport Scotland’s Switched on Towns and Cities Fund. This will fund 66 chargers, a mix of rapid (50kW), fast (22kW) and slow (7kW).
