Flanders will receive 49 ultra-fast chargers over the next two years

Flemish Minister of Mobility and Public Works Lydia Peeters (Open VLD) will roll out ultra-fast chargers (150kW) at 49 locations along highways and regional roads in Flanders. That will happen by June 2024.

In concrete terms, ultra-fast charging infrastructure will be installed at 8 locations in Antwerp, 7 in Limburg, 13 in East Flanders, 13 in Flemish Brabant and 8 in West Flanders before June 2024. Peeters reports this in a press release on Saturday. It concerns several service zones, carpool parking, hoppin points and park & ​​rides.

‘The car parks along large and busy traffic axes are important and strategically located locations for expanding our charging infrastructure,’ says the minister. ‘In this way we ensure that charging infrastructure is offered every 25 kilometers along major traffic axes. We provide 5.4 million euros for this.’

‘With a view to the switch to zero-emission vehicles, as also included in the Flemish Climate Plan, an accelerated expansion of charging infrastructure is necessary. Charging infrastructure along our highways gives drivers of electric cars the confidence to always be able to “charge” nearby, thus stimulating the transition to zero-emission cars.’
