    Yahoo! Just checked and now showing. :)
    Quick question, does anyone know how long, approximately, it will take to complete a supercharger station?

    Pretty sure it's not long, about 4 weeks. Maybe 6 weeks if there are delays (electricity company etc.)

    Hopefully. But as at when I took the photos there was no power supply/transformer (or whatever) installed yet.

    Awfully quiet here. No updates?
    I'll be driving south next week, I'll drop by MC and take photos.

    IMG_0020.JPG Look what I just saw. :)
    I think they are getting ready for model Xs with trailers. I asked a staff in Macadamia Castle if they knew or were allowed to say when this was going to officially open, she said she didn't know.

    I think so. Six bays here. Only a few minutes off the Pacific Highway.

    Looks like this one is wrapped up and I expect Heatherbrae to be in the same condition next week. Just Coffs and Brisbane to go!!

    That would be great if they could get Coffs and Brisbane online prior to Christmas, although I'm not holding my breath

    They haven't even started on Coffs and Brisbane so no chance of that.

    Do you believe that their promise to complete the Brisbane to Melbourne network by the end of this year will not be fulfilled?

    It does look like it's pretty much done but the parking lines are still not done. I winter if they already have pixies coursing through their cable already?

    I'll drop by again on Saturday on my way back just check.

    There is now absolutely no chance of that. There is no construction on a Brisbane site, possibly not even a site selected.

    They have not started construction on a Coffs Harbour site and although they could be putting in a sled like at Euroa at some point, if they planned on having that in by the end of the year you'd think they would announce it as they didn't draw a distinction between a permanent site and a sled when they put in Euroa (nor should they, as for now, a 2 bay sled is enough).

    I couldn't drop by on my way back last Saturday, I had to rush home. I do have some free time this Sunday and I plan on having another look.

    Getting very tight for that. About 6 weeks is needed, and there's about 5 weeks until christmas. Could be done in a month if all the stars align, but do they ever?
