Recharge your vehicle by popping to the shops
Drivers who are popping to the shops in Bury St Edmunds can now recharge their electric vehicles (EVs) in as little as 30 minutes after a new rapid charger was installed.
Highways England is investing more than £400,000 to install 11 rapid chargers across East Anglia, one of the first of which has been unveiled in the low emission car park in School yard East, close to the arc shopping centre.
The rapid charger is capable of charging two cars at a time and can substantially recharge the battery of an EV in just 30 minutes.
Users will be able to park for free for up to two hours while their vehicle charges. They will only have to pay for the amount of electricity they purchase and will be able to pay via contactless card or use their existing Swarco E-Connect network account.
