COP26 Glasgow CPS Chargers Impacted by Road Closures

The arrival of COP26 will see travel around Glasgow significantly impacted as world leaders, delegates and climate activists gather to discuss the important action required to inspire positive change in tackling the climate emergency.

The CPS network is one way in which Scotland is proactively approaching climate change, with the impressive growth of the EV network from 55 public chargers in 2013 to currently over 2,100 setting the precedent for countries worldwide.

Due to the influx of high profile individuals there are security measures in place which involve the closure of certain roads resulting in no public access to some chargers on the CPS network. We strongly advise planning ahead and making use of other charging points in the area during this time which can be found on the CPS website and mobile app map functions. The locations impacted are as follows (subject to change):
