King’s Lynn St James Car Park three-week work programme to upgrade electric car charging points to start

Work will be starting on Monday to upgrade the electric car charging points at St James multi-storey car park in Lynn.

BP Pulse is undertaking the work and this will impact access to some of the external bays in the car park.

The three-week programme of upgrades will create 50kw chargers that can charge up to six vehicles at a time.

The electricity will be paid for by the user via an app, using a BP pulse membership card, Radio Frequency ID card, credit or debit card.

To enable these works, external bays on the ground floor of St James multi-storey will be closed for the duration of the works that are taking place until Friday, July 14.

Side access to disabled parking will be closed next Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, June 28,29, and 30 so that underground cables can be installed.

Disabled drivers are advised to use the bays in the car park that can be accessed through the barrier or use nearby parking on Blackfriars Street.

To upgrade electric vehicle chargers in the area the borough council secured a grant of £195,000 from the government’s office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) and a further contribution of nearly £90,000 from BP Pulse, as well as its own contribution of £73,500.
