My understanding is that power is all solved at Winchester so it’s just waiting for switch on.
Rownhams is the first Roadchef project and so they may be getting their ducks in a row before getting started. It is still listed as a “Q4 2021” project so hopefully just a little slow getting underway.
If I recall the plan at Rownhams it's not a simple installation and requires quite of a lot of groundworks to enable it.

Have got a scout heading to site to see if there’s any signs of work…. Will report back hopefully with photos but my bet is it will have nothing yet.
It's still at the planning stage, which with Croydon Council being in the mess it's in doesn't bode well. In the meantime all the info can be found in the attached

Does anyone know when the Trafford Superchargers go live?
I visited today (to see all the M3s waiting for collection) and the guy said that all the fencing and building stuff has been removed from the SuC and they must be nearly ready to go....

I spoke to one of the service team at Winchester today (23 November) who told me that they have 12 new units installed, just waiting on the arrival of a new transformer and its connection before they go live. The Tesla chargers line the service road between Tesla and Mercedes... this seems to amuse the Tesla team and irritate the Mercedes people...

They expect the SuCs to be live before Christmas.

Tesla Bournemouth??
I was informed by a member of the Winchester team that Tesla are working on a Tesla Location for charging in the Bournemouth/Poole area.
That would be really useful.
Anyone have any supporting evidence?
Planning permission is in for the Blandford Hill Eco Hub on the A354 at Winterborne which will have six superchargers. This could well be what they meant.

Dublin, Ireland under construction
The linked thread just seems to reference the planning application which was granted in June - is there confirmation that construction has started now?
Same goes for Enfield - planning application dates back to May but now shown as under construction on supercharge.info?
Great news if both are under way.

There was still conduit near the cabinets that were empty when I passed last night. So likely cables still need pulling and possibly a GRP over the top of the grey transformer(?). Heras barrier still around the cabinets too.

I think this is still a few days/weeks off

Was this mentioned yet?

There’s no sign of work on site yet. They had to put in a connection to the grid a couple of miles away first. When I passed those works running alongside the ring road last week, it looked like they’d been done.

There are some notes on the wiki post at the start of this thread, buried down in the 2022 table (Oxford Redbridge), referencing another of @Derek25 's posts from September. This particular site matches one of Tesla's "Coming Soon" markers.

The work to lay the power cable is being done in 3 sections and the last of them isn’t due to be completed until early next year, although it’s possible they finished it early.

Apparently, work started this week on the charging hub. I’ll try to drop by and see if there are any signs of the superchargers Work starts on the UK’s largest public electric vehicle charging hub at Redbridge Park & Ride | Oxford City Council
 
Some pics from Oxford Redbridge. The work is to one side of where I understand the superchargers and Fastned rapids will be so it must be just the initial electrical installations.
