Development of the Queensland Electric Super Highway is entering its third phase with the addition of 23 new charging locations across the state, starting with a new charger unveiled late last week in St George.

Repeatedly billed by the Queensland government as “the longest EV Super Highway in the world” – a charge Western Australia’s own EV Network would likely challenge – the third phase will roll out 23 new fast chargers across the state, linking regional and rural locations.

Two new charging sites along the Queensland and New South Wales border are planned at Goondiwindi and Stanthorpe, as well as other rural and regional locations such as Emerald, Injune, Rolleston, and Roma.

Once completed, the third phase of the Queensland EV Super Highway will connect a range of routes, such as from Brisbane to Mount Isa via the Dinosaur Trail locations, Goondiwindi to Emerald, Cunnamulla to Barcaldine, and Longreach to Cairns.

The new chargers will be installed in convenient and safe locations, close to major highways and existing amenities such as local cafes, restaurants, and shops.

Upon completion, the Queensland EV Super Highway will consist of 54 fast charging locations.

Locations will allow for DC charging using CHAdeMO and CCS Combo Type 2 cables and AC charging using a Type 2 Mennekes socket, but drivers must bring their own charging cable.

Access to the charging network will require a Chargefox account, with the app available from both the Apple App Store or Google Play.
