Electric Charging Hub - Necton

29th June 2020

I have long said that Norfolk could, and should, be at the forefront of our country’s transport revolution – as we move towards achieiving the Government’s Zero Carbon targets.

That’s why I am delighted to hear that the new service station at Necton has become home to one of the largest Electric Rapid Charging Point Hubs in the country.

The company InstaVolt has opened the hub, which consists of eight state-of-the-art high powered rapid charging points. Located at this key strategic location in our county, the hub is ideally placed to cater for a large number of electric vehicle owners.

This is wonderful news for our beautiful part of the world – and builds on the outstanding work being done by so many others, including our local councils.

As a former Minister of State for the Future of Transport and someone determined to protect our rural way of life at the same time as improving our connectivity and prosperity, I believe this is a fantastic step forward for Mid Norfolk – and I look forward to seeing more in the months and years to come.
