As announced in the Spending Review on 25 November 2020, the Government will invest £950 million in future proofing grid capacity along the Strategic Road Network to prepare for 100% uptake of zero emission cars and vans ahead of need. The Spending Review announcement supersedes the March 2020 budget. As of 26th November 2020 no funding has been released, however work to design the Rapid Charging Fund is underway and the timing and process for the delivery of this funding will be confirmed in due course.
