    Any news about Byron Bay? Or any other SC to be built.

    Still none. It's getting real quiet out there.

    Does anyone else get the feeling that the Aussie rollout of super chargers has stalled?

    I know I know, red tape et al. But c'mon... Really? And finished by end of December? Looks a little too tight for me.

    At the Martin Place launch event the local chief re-committed to Sydney -> Brisbane by the end of the year.

    Once they start the construction goes pretty quickly. Port Macquarie didn't take long to do at all, so there is still 5 months to go.... I was hoping that it would have been done before the end of April but made the trip without drama anyway, just a stop at Coffs showground.

    Goulburn was the first outside of Sydney last year and did not open till 16/9 according to supercharge.info so they can easily complete before the year end at this stage.

    Tesla person told me that they've broken ground at the Heatherbrae site.
    I went up to look for it but couldn't find anything.

    Interesting! I check the Newcastle and Port Stephens Council websites for DAs regularly but haven't seen anything. I'll take another look...

    However looking into the details neither of them mentioned EV charging at all. Locals, please keep your eye out :)

    I drove through Heatherbrae twice yesterday!!! I will pop go through there slowly next time. It is just a big end of the freeway business park pretty much, there isn't that much construction going on, so if it has started, it cannot be that hard to find!!

    I did the "slow drive-by" but couldn't see any works. Checked basically the whole highway from the pie roundabout and south.

    I'm a local and can easily swing past there once a week. I will call into the motel and ask, I'll have a look around the BP as well as it has a big set of food shops around and behind it. If it has actually 'broken ground' it shouldn't be too hard to find as it normally results in a pad for a sub.

    It shouldn't replicate. This thread should just be about the Byron location. Every other new supercharger location has had its own sticky thread until commissioning.
