Network Rail adds 450 EV charge points at stations across the UK

Network Rail, which owns and operates most of the railway network in the UK, has installed 452 new EV charging points at car parks at railway stations. The company aims to equip ten per cent of its car parking spaces, about 779 bays, by March 2024.

The most recent installations include 160 charging points in Reading, 111 in Manchester, 84 in Edinburgh, 56 in Leeds and 41 in Welwyn Garden City. Compleo has delivered the columns marked with green parking bays, and passengers can pay via the APCOA Connect app.

Network Rail says they guarantee renewable energy and that a vehicle can fully charge in three to four hours but did not go into further technical detail.

Car park company APCOA manages Network Rail’s 32 car parks and delivered the payment solution together with Compleo.

Compleo Charging Solutions UK has over 100 corporate customers, with a European team of 600 employees across Germany, Austria, Sweden and the UK. The company is part of Compleo Charging Solutions GmbH, Germany.
