New electric car charging station for Whitsunday road trippers

Electric car owners will soon find it easier to plan a road trip to the Whitsundays, with the installation of the region's second car charging station.
The station will soon be installed in Proserpine, and follows the successful trial station installed in Bowen in 2017. 
It means travellers will be able to charge up along roads from Cairns to Coolangatta, and Brisbane to Toowoomba.
The install is part of a 50-million-dollar Bruce Highway investment, and supports dozens of jobs.
