Enhancing electric transport options

Enhancing electric transport options

We will expand the D2N2 rapid electric charge point network, publicly available for use by electric car and taxi drivers, including charge points in Broadmarsh car park.

We will also continue funding out business support package – the Workplace Travel Service – which helps businesses in the city offer sustainable travel options for employees through personalised travel planning, grants and other schemes.

To date, the service has provided funding to install showers and cycle racks, and electric vehicles charge points, enabling businesses to cut down their air pollution.

These schemes will complement additional projects funded using a £16.7 million Future Transport Zone grant, awarded to Nottingham and Derby City Councils.

Project Update – 1 December 2021

Expansion of the D2N2 charge point network

This project builds on the existing D2N2 network of electric vehicle charge points, the majority of which were fast 7kW chargers, with a focus on the majority of sites being equipped with x2 or more 50kW rapid chargers to reduce charge times. Scheme will deliver installation of approximately 60 units across Nottingham and Derby. Within the Nottingham City and County areas charge points have been installed at University Boulevard, Clifton South P&R, Victoria Street car park in Broxtowe and Radcliffe Health Centre and Gamston Community Centre in Rushcliffe.

Additional charge points with solar canopies are also proposed at Toton Lane tram Park & Ride and Trowell Road. Rapid charge points have also been installed at Markeaton Park & Ride site in Derby.

Provision of electric charge points in the new Broadmarsh car park

Provision of 81 chargepoints in the new Broadmarsh Car Park. Works have now been completed and the car park opened to the public on 1 November 2021.

Continued funding of the Workplace Travel Service

The Workplace Travel Service offers grants of up to £25,000 for sustainable transport infrastructure to business, public and voluntary sector organisations within the City boundary to help meet the costs of workplace travel improvements such as electric vehicle charge points, cycle parking, showers, pool bikes, car sharing and car parking management. Interested businesses complete an expression of interest outlining what they are looking to deliver and are put into contact with one of the city council’s workplace travel advisors. To the end of September 2021 17 grants had been awarded, seven of which were for EV charge points.
