    This one has been discussed on the MEL-ADL thread. But I think it is clear that Tesla intends to build this one.

    We have been aware of this entry for some time:

    But I only just found this one which confirms they have submitted a development application:

    Exciting times!

    I wonder if Tesla have a relationship with Shell/Coles as a result of the Euroa install? If so there are Shell/Coles stations at Ballarat, Ararat and Horsham on the MEL-ADL route. Ballarat + Horsham would fill the gap to Keith with all stops in the 185km range of existing supercharger deployments.

    G'day srwx, My understanding of the Euroa SC, is that the servo is NOT a Shell company owned site, but privately operated, & therefore not a 'direct' relationship between Tesla & Shell. Once the Sydney to Brisbane leg is covered by SC's this year, I'm sure we will see the Melbourne to Adelaide route, starting with Keith, develop fairly quickly.

    Seems strange that Keith's plans are so advanced and no word on the rest of the route - Keith will be like a little supercharger island on a much bigger island :)

    On the other hand (from a glass half full perspective) ...

    Mel to Adl - Just need a 2h lunchtime charge at the Horsham International and the Keith Supercharger will get you the rest of the way.

    Syd to Adl - Now (with Keith) there will be an all-supercharger route via Euroa - apart from overnighting at Horsham - but you have to overnight somewhere !

    Perth to Adl - Sorry ;)

    I don't think it's that they are particularly advanced, more that some councils are more open than others, they have different bars set as to what level of development requires a DA, some have more red-tape than others. Tesla could likely be at the same stage with other towns on the route, but we just don't know about it.

    Never actually considered that - only 99km longer than the most direct route too!

    The Teslarati map is just the http://supercharge.info map, which gets it's info from threads such as these.

    I don't know about that app, @joninmelbourne, but it is probably a third party app that does the same thing!

    Time to sticky this yet given the increasing info emerging? Likewise Horsham?

    Thanks to our members we have pictures of SC adjacent Ballarat and it looks almost completed. Do we have any visual confirmation of actual activity on the ground in Keith or just paper work? With a full charge I think it would be just feasible to do the stretch from Keith to Ballarat even without Horsham.

    I'm probably going to drive to Adelaide in April, it doesn't look like I'll be doing it in a day as nothing seems to be happening in Keith

    Not quickly anyway! I'm planning a trip too, but putting it off until at least Keith is going. Late in the year it will be I'm guessing.

    What's the word on the location of the next supercharged on the Melbourne to Adelaide route, is it just Keith and Horsham?
