New road to be constructed for charging cars (PICTURES)


The new road about to be constructed and it will be charging electric cars as they ply the road. They are plans to install chargers for every 20 miles on the motorway network.

Road more after the cut...

This technology allows electric cars to be powered  by equipment underneath the surface of the road to be trailed in England. Almost all electric cars need recharging after around 100 miles but the system called ''Dynamic wireless power transfer'' will remove the need for lengthy stops.



Highways England says it would look at installing it on motorways and major A roads. 

More than 35,000 electric cars have been registered since 2001 in the UK.

Transport minister Andrew Jones added: The potential to recharge low emission vehicles on the move offers exciting possibilities.

''The government is already committing  £500 million over the next five years to keep Britain at the forefront of this technology, which will boost jobs growth in the sector.

''As this study shows, we continue to explore options on how to improve journeys and make low emissions vehicles accessible to families and businesses.'' he said.
