    Great to see so many regional centre’s! Hopefully more farmers get solar and electric cars, having fast chargers in town would allow them to charge for the return trip.

    I would like to see Hay added to open this route to Adelaide. Bourke and broken hill would also be good for the above reason.

    I agree about the regional centres, there's always the risk that the project may have just seen 20 fast chargers around Sydney and maybe a token Pacific Highway route, glad to see it is way more than that!

    After the Chargefox announcement last year, I looked at the map and noticed the Hume and Pacific Highways were suspiciously lacking in NRMA sites and I thought they may had come to some agreement to leave those routes to Chargefox and their 350kW charging and spread the 50kW ones around the other parts of the state. It looks like that isn't 100% correct but interesting to see what happens there.

    Now that’s an interesting comment! I couldn’t find any locations west of the Newell Highway when I searched recently which lead me to think they were only focusing on connecting regional cities and towns east of there.

    The wording says “eventually” so they still might not be... but nice to see they recognise the future need for this connection!

    It's great to see someone from NRMA contributing in a public space. Are you in a position to talk freely around potential, proposed or confirmed sites and routes?

    I expect I know the answer but you never know.

    If the location on the map is precise, it's in the same car park where the Tamworth Regional Council denied a spot to Tesla a few months back!
