I like this a lot. But what's the economics model here? Are we going to see a 70p/kWh Ionity rate to justify this level of infrastructure build out?
So it’s all one way and to access the car chargers you have to go around the back of the building and just before exiting, you turn right and then choose one of the four rows. Once charged, you exit on the left of the building, then around the back again.I don’t get it. The road layout looks ok in the video, easy access to charging spaces. But the drawings with arrows showing traffic flow just don’t make sense.
Yes, but it doesn’t work like that in the video which makes more sense.🙃So it’s all one way and to access the car chargers you have to go around the back of the building and just before exiting, you turn right and then choose one of the four rows.

You could well end up quite giddy, especially if you miss the right turn to go under the canopy and exit by mistake. You could be going around for hours! If you didn’t need a charge when you first arrived, you would after a few circuits around this one way system.🤣
Watched the video again and see what you mean. The documents are part of the planning application so assume they are correct. The video is just for marketing, but I do prefer the traffic flow it shows.Yes, but it doesn’t work like that in the video which makes more sense.🙃
Gridserve have plans to build over 100 of these around the country. This is just the first...The concept of this is great, but why in Braintree? It's not on a particularly major part of the road system. It would be far better to have it just off the M25/M1/A1/M62/M6 etc..
Thanks. Found the particular paragraph which you refer to:
Found this in the planning document:Lots of 'attenuation' on the plan - is that a hint it's been built on a flood plain?
Can’t see queuing being an issue for a few years. But then again it might attract quite a few sightseers when it first opens. Then they’ll be destination chargers!!I was thinking of queuing looking at the plan - forward-looking but possible you could get lines in future like the Tesla supercharger ones in the US around Thanksgiving. Didn't make sense given exit traffic would need to use the same road but if they've revised to let exit traffic pass then that's sensible.
