It’s not yet official, but Queenslanders will soon have three times more charging locations to choose from when driving an electric car up along its tropical coast and what is the world’s longest intrastate “electric car charging highway.”

The so-called Queensland electric super highway – or QESH – currently boasts 17 charging locations dotted along the state’s coastline, from Coolangatta, out to Toowoomba and all the way up to Cairns.

But according to a plan currently being nutted out between various state departments including Queensland’s Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR), and clean energy infrastructure organisation Yurika, this network will soon be extended by at least 50 more electric car charging stations.

A LinkedIn post issued last week by Yurika, broke the news last week:

The world’s longest Electric Super Highway already stretches form Cairns to Coolangatta to Toowoomba with 17 EV charging stations.

We’re now working with Department of Transport and Main Roads to finalise the development of Phase 2 which will increase the number of EV charging stations to over 50 across Queensland!
