Installation of 30 new charging points is one small step towards levelling up EV charging in the UK.
Connected Kerb reaffirmed its commitment to making the North central to a full EV transition with the launch of 30 new affordable, sustainable and long-lasting charging points in Warrington.
The on-street charging infrastructure will support EV users without access to driveways and aim to improve air quality in the town following the declaration of a climate emergency by Warrington Borough Council, who signed the contract with us.
The initiative also demonstrates Connected Kerb's commitment to 'levelling up' charging in the North, given that the UK's EV network has been concentrated for so long in big cities such as London.
Connected Kerb remains committed to providing charging that is high value, low impact and accessible to all, particularly in a cost of living and global energy crisis.
The project will see installations completed on Bewsey Street, Gladstone Street, Lexden Street, Manchester Road and White Street.
Warrington Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for highways, transportation and public realm, Cllr Hans Mundry, said: “Through our Local Transport Plan, we’ve committed to building sustainable transport into daily life in Warrington. That’s why it’s vital that we support more residents to make the switch away from traditional petrol or diesel-powered cars.
“I’m delighted that this fantastic network of new EV charging points, in the heart of our communities, has now been launched. It’s an important part of work to remove barriers for those without driveways and help more local people make the transition to electric vehicles.”
The council’s cabinet member for Sustainability and Climate change, Cllr Janet Henshaw, added: “Making changes to the way we travel is one of the most impactful things we can do to reduce carbon emissions, improve air quality and tackle the climate emergency. Electric vehicles will be a key part of transport in the future, and investing in the infrastructure to support this transition is a key priority for us.
