BREST, 7 March (BelTA) – A new electric vehicle charging station will be installed on the M1/E30 highway in Ivatsevichi District (Brest Oblast). The decision was made by Brest Oblast Governor Anatoly Lis on 7 March, BelTA has learned.
The governor had a meeting with businessman Viktor Yermakovich. The latter has been running a motorway service area for almost 25 years. Viktor Yermakovich intends to develop his business. In 2017, the district executive committee granted him a land plot to build a new hotel complex. In his words, to date the facility is 85% ready but it will not become operational until a parking lot, a slip lane, and an off-ramp are built.
Anatoly Lis offered a way out of the situation. The motorway service area should get a level 3 status which requires an electric vehicle charging station. When the paperwork is completed, the facility will be included in the general list of level 3 motorway service facilities. Then, the state-run Brestavtodor company that owns the road will be able to build acceleration lanes and a parking lot there.
“I am happy that we have solved this matter,” the businessman told journalists after the meeting. “I will make every effort to do this as quickly as possible. I think, the design of the charging station will be ready within two months. This project will not be expensive. This is the only way out of the situation I have,” Viktor Yermakovich remarked.
Anatoly Lis had one-on-one meetings with 12 citizens on 7 March – residents of Brest, Pinsk, and Brest District. They submitted requests regarding road construction, housing repair, housing and utilities services, and rental payments. Every request was taken under control.More about Society
