Mon, 09/10/2023 - 09:50

This is certainly not a development towards sustainable transport, as our road congestion and road crashes rates will remain unchanged. These will then impact on meeting our city's long-term mobility goals. In addition, EV charging stations will also occupy valuable public spaces. The conversation around the promotion of EVs needs to consider and actively address these factors.
