QLD’s Electric Super Highway from the Gold Coast to Cairns

From the Gold Coast to Cairns: The future of motoring in Queensland will be electric with the launch, today, of the Queensland Electric Super Highway – the world’s longest in one state.

The super highway will be a series of fast-charging electric vehicle stations along the state’s coast to encourage more Queenslanders to change to an electric vehicle.

Acting Main Roads Minister Steven Miles said: “The project is ambitious, but we want as many people as possible on board to electric vehicle revolution, as part of our transition to a low emissions future.


“Today I’m announcing the first 18 towns and cities that make up phase one of the Electric Super Highway and will, once operational in the next six months, make it possible to drive an electric vehicle from the state’s southern border to the Far North.

“They will be available for use at no cost for the initial phase of the super highway so we can encourage as many people as possible to start using them,” said Mr Miles.

*The locations of the fast-charging stations: Coolangatta, Helensvale, Cairns, Tully, Townsville, Bowen, Mackay, Carmila, Marlborough, Rockhampton, Miriam Vale, Childers, Maryborough, Cooroy, Brisbane, Springfield, Gatton and Toowoomba.
