Australia: CBD to plug into cars of the future

IN A Victorian first, charging stations for electric cars are likely to be installed at 12 on-street parking spaces in Melbourne’s city centre, as part of a program being introduced by the Department of Transport.

Melbourne City councillors will tomorrow vote on a plan to work with the department to alter a dozen metered parking spaces in the CBD to make way for electric car recharging devices.
