Highway England plans to run the off road trials of charging roads for 18 months before moving to public highways. Over next five years, UK will invest £500 million to stay on the cutting edge of the technology.

The off road trials of wireless power technology will help to create a more sustainable road network for England and open up new opportunities for businesses that transport goods across the country.
