Save the ONLY fast electric vehicle charging station in Sydney.

This petition had 458 supporters

The only fast electric vehicles (EV) charging station in Sydney is being decommissioned. This will negatively affect the use and uptake of electric cars in Sydney and damage the reputation of the transportation network. This station in North Strathfield was installed by NRMA and Canada Bay City Council in 2012. The charger is located at 32 George St., North Strathfield, New South Wales 2137. The details can be viewed here: 

It has been broken for the past few months and many EV owners have raised concerns and disappointment about this (you can see the full comments history by following the link above). 

Before it was broken, it was regularly and efficiently used by many drivers.

NRMA is now planning to decommission the charger instead of repairing it. Canada Bay Council has shown no interest in taking over and maintaining the charger although the council represented by Angelo Tsirekas (mayor of City of Canada Bay at the time) was publicly involved in the installation and opening. If removed, this would be a big step back for the transportation infrastructure and make Sydney the only major city in Australia without a single rapid charger of this type. 

We appeal to the Council on behalf of electric vehicle owners and enthusiasts of Sydney to keep, repair and maintain the charger.

I am a member of Australian Electric Vehicle Association, an owner of 3 electric cars and a director of Eveeh, a company that is dedicated to increasing the adoption of sustainable electric transportation in Australia. I believe we should work together with the government to create a better infrastructure to increase the uptake of electric cars.
