Improved access to Electric Vehicle Charge Stations to support investment in the region to operate by July 2023
Several holiday towns within East Gippsland will soon have improved access to Electric Vehicle Charge Stations, after a push in the Victorian Parliament from local Nationals State MP, Tim Bull.
Paynesville, Bruthen, Orbost, Lakes Entrance, Bairnsdale, Buchan, Cann River and Lakes Entrance have been identified as locations needing additional charging services, making the region a more attractive destination for owners of plug-in reliant vehicles. "These charge stations will support the existing private investment in the region that will help eliminate range anxiety for visitors by dotting charge stations throughout East Gippsland's popular tourist destinations and connecting townships," Mr Bull said.

Responding to the matter
Mr Bull said, "After raising the issues of having a shortfall of EV charge stations in East Gippsland, Mr Bull says local Business and Tourism Associations (BTA) suggest the expansion can't come soon enough."
"In having this matter responded to, I will also continue to make the case for a major investment in the quality of roads in rural and regional Victoria. While we are seeking more detail on the changing stations, I believe they will be operational by July 2023." Mr Bull continued.
Support to the locals
Mr Bull also said, "Not only do these short charging stops provide travellers an opportunity to take a break from the road, but drivers also often support the local townships they charge in, by shopping in the retail stores or by grabbing a coffee at the local cafe."
"I am pleased to see East Gippsland included in the expanding access to public electric vehicle charging infrastructure in Victoria, but we now need a focus on repairing the roads also." Mr Bull said.
