Haringey is one of six boroughs awarded funding from TFL and the Mayor of London (external link) to encourage the uptake of electric vehicles. The Wood Green project will:
- Offer business and residents free trials of electric vehicles
- Install charging infrastructure including a rapid charging taxi rank
- Provide businesses with free support to review opportunities to switch to electric vehicles
- Electrify all car club bays in Wood Green
Why we chose Wood Green
Wood Green High Road is the heart of Haringey and draws in nearly quarter of a million shoppers, visitors and employees from across the borough and beyond to shop, work and relax each week.
The project is based between Wood Green and Turnpike Lane underground stations. The area is currently the focus for major residential-led regeneration and is subject to an Area Action Plan.
Whilst the focus of the project is in Wood Green there are plans to increase the number of electric charging points throughout the borough.
