After going from “temp closed” to “reduced service” last week, Adderstone is once again showing as Temporary closure today along with Cardiff.

Brent Cross still marked as temporary closed along with Braintree and North Greenwich.

Its about 100miles from Darts so not sure it will have much impact on that a bit maybe. The main benefit I think is going to be for people travelling to and around that part of Cornwall being able to charge easily before reaching their destination and during their holidays and for the first leg home. Rapids are thin on the ground there and there mush be quite a bit of accommodation without access to even an outdoor socket.
Should definitely take some pressure off Lifton though. If traveling to Western Cornwall Lifton is tempting even if you don't really need a charge so as to arrive at your final destination with some spare touring around electrons.
Exactly what I did when I went to Polzeath back in June. Stopped at Gordano on the M5 to get to 80% then stopped again at Lifton to give me some touring electrons ;). Then I just topped off with granny charging overnight when needed at the holiday let.
(Did stop at Darts Farm on way home though 😄)

Redruth Supercharger update:
it will be a few more weeks yet as the DNO must dig the power supply.ts not a long distance but it appears to be planned out by teams there today.
any idea how many is a few? I, and half the rest of the country, will be there in about 2 weeks 😟
Can you slip them a fiver?

Aidan from TOUK visited and scouted everything out and I think had a quick chat with contractors. Western Power HQ is next door so you’d hope everyone is motivated to make it quick and easy! He suggested it would at leat a couple of weeks but with DNOs it could be longer, but it being on WP’s doorstep I’d hope it would be high priority!

New Superchargers in Cornwall almost complete.
Aaron Dickens on TOUK has just spotted 8x V3 built but not on yet at Cornwall College.
I’m working on a postcode of TR15 3RD until I get exact coordinates.

Thanks for the info, v helpful.

So do we know if these are instead of the Newquay ones or in addition to?

My guess, based on how Tesla's map has evolved in the past, would be that Redruth/Camborne will replace Newquay, but it is just a semi-educated guess. A shift of ~15 miles isn't unprecedented - for example Adderstone vs. the original Berwick marker - and the Newquay marker is in a notional location with a target opening date of Q3 2021. For now I've kept both in the table in the Wiki post (#1).

That said, there are examples of target markers being retained, such as the Leicester one near the M1 being retained after Fosse Park West opened.

How do you find the westfield super chargers? I’m going up on Sunday and I remember the entrances to the different car parks not being easy to understand and I don’t think they are connected so if you go in the wrong one you’re stuffed?

and is it still 1 hour free parking if you pop out to the tesla shop and get your ticket validated? Do they even care if you’re charging or not? (How would they know)

Go to car park A and stay to the far right. There is an overhead sign for supercharger. It’s on level -2 but the levels aren’t connected so if you miss it you have to come out and go back in again.
