To ask the Minister for Infrastructure (i) how many rapid charging points will be installed through the EU FASTER project; (ii) when they will be installed by; and (iii) where they will be located.

I am pleased that my Department has been able to support the FASTER project which is funded through the INTERREG VA Territorial Co-operation Programme for Northern Ireland, the border counties of the South and the West of Scotland, which is managed by the Special EU Programmes Body.
The project proposes to install a total of 73 electric vehicle charging points across the Programme’s eligible area by the 31 March 2023.
At this stage, the exact location of all installation points has yet to be finalised.
