Charging station blockers of a different kind

Charging station blockers of a different kind

More than 1,000 publicly accessible charging points for electric cars are now available in Hamburg. However, as a video from Extra 3 shows, e-car drivers have recently had a problem charging at a charging point on the Außenalster.

Because the access is blocked by a new bike sharing station of StadtRAD Hamburg. The corresponding parking spaces especially for electric cars are also no longer available. Unfortunately, no longer charging cable helps.

Update 23.12.2020: The fast charger at Schwanenwik in Hamburg has been "taken out of service", as it has now been covered with a grey tarpaulin by Stromnetz Hamburg. Further use was therefore apparently no longer planned after the new bikesharing station was set up. However, this was not recognisable for electric car drivers - as the video from Extra 3 shows. However, this does not completely mean the end for the charging point. Two new charging points are already said to have been completed in the immediate vicinity, where the charging station is to be connected to the grid again.ndr.de (video), bild.de (update)
