Answered By: 
The Mayor

TfL has been working closely with London boroughs and private land owners to identify suitable sites across London for rapid charge points. It has now appointed the suppliers who will provide these points across the capital to make it easier than ever before to use electric vehicles, especially for commercial use. TfL has identified a large number of potential sites, including locations on the borough and TfL road networks, as well as off-street sites on TfL, borough and private land.

As all of these sites are subject to feasibility assessments, planning and new electricity connectivity, it is difficult to forecast precisely which sites will become operational in 2017 and which ones will be delivered later in the programme. TfL will publicise the locations of rapid charge points across London as soon as the planning processes have been completed for each site.
