Nottingham Eco Expressway to bring exclusive lane for EVs
Electric vehicle drivers are to gain their own EV highway along one of Nottingham’s busiest routes from spring next year.
Work has already started on the six-mile route from the city, which will bring a road lane for EVs and a new fleet of electric buses.
The route is funded through the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Local Enterprise Partnership.
Councillor Nick McDonald, Portfolio Holder for Growth and Transport at Nottingham City Council, said: “The Eco Expressway is an exciting new development that grows our commitment to low-emission transport further. It will provide quicker and cleaner travel and help to improve the city’s air quality. The new cycle route will include another cycle superhighway for rapid and safe cycling and the new all-electric buses are an exciting step forward towards sustainable transport in the city.”
