Yeah. If you want to head out that way, Swaffham or Thetford might've been better locations.It’s great to see another one in planning but I’m sceptical how beneficial this location will be for people on the move. For a start it’s on the east of Norwich but I guess it’s useful for Great Yarmouth.
If you look where the Gridserve is going on Google maps, it's about half a mile from a Bannantynes, which has a pair of Instavolts.There’s an 8 bay Instavolt at Necton, not as flash looking as the development in the OP, but a very useful resource for that part of the country.
I agree there’s not a lot of logic to it here, it was just that within 6 miles of Swaffham there’s already a great charging resource.If you look where the Gridserve is going on Google maps, it's about half a mile from a Bannantynes, which has a pair of Instavolts.
The Gridserve is more convenient if you aren't going that way! Outside Norwich is fairly sensible because it's the largest city for miles - so lots of traffic potentially. I don't think it's trying to compete with Bannatyne's, rather it's complementary.I agree there’s not a lot of logic to it here, it was just that within 6 miles of Swaffham there’s already a great charging resource.
That's about the least EV friendly route imaginable: drive 15 miles round on dual carriageways with loads of roundabouts rather than 5 miles at lower speeds going through the city. There's already a couple of Instavolts a few hundred yards from there anyway. There are significantly better locations they could choose.It's close to me (which means it's essentially not of much use although I'll probably visit out of interest) but I'd have thought that the Thickthorn junction of the A11 and A47 would have been a more obvious location. However, I guess in addition to Yarmouth it's also on the way to N Norfolk coast if you're going up the A1270.
