“The above is the proposal for the operation subsidy plan for the expressway ‘ Heartwarming Home ‘, please show your hands to vote now…” This is the proposal for the China EV charger operation subsidy. On March 22, the first joint meeting on the operation and management of expressways in Sichuan Province was held. An important plan closely related to operation and management was voted and approved by 55 member units of the expressway network.
This is the first time that Sichuan Province has released relevant documents on expressway operation management in a similar way.
Provide public service, and subsidize half of the operating fee of the expressway “Heartwarming Home”
Expressway “Heartwarming Home” is built on the expressway service area, providing a warm and affordable place for truck drivers to rest, eat, and bathe.
Statistics show that at present, 17.28 million truck drivers across the country are responsible for more than 70% of the freight volume and more than 30% of the turnover in the whole society.
In 2021, the traffic volume of trucks on expressways in Sichuan Province will only account for 15.4% of the total traffic volume, but the toll will reach 51.2% of the total.
Zhang Min, deputy director of the Expressway Administration of the Sichuan Provincial Department of Transportation, introduced that the construction of the expressway “Heartwarming Home” is an important measure for Sichuan Province to improve the level of freight service security and enhance the sense of acquisition and happiness of truck drivers. Its operation is of a public welfare nature.
For example, the “Heartwarming Home” in the Jintang service area of Chengde South Expressway is free of charge for bathing and laundry, and the minimum stay is 1 yuan per night.
“For the long-term development of ‘House of Warming’, there must be a corresponding subsidy mechanism.” For this reason, the Sichuan Expressway Road Network Operation and Management Joint Committee decided to use the expressway network operation to ensure service fees and the expressway network operation guarantee service fee. “Heartwarming Home” operations are subsidized.
According to the plan approved by the vote, the operating company of the road section of the “Heartwarming Home (Driver’s Home)” in the service area will be subsidized every year according to the standard of 50% of the operating cost of “Heartwarming Home”.
Encourage the construction of more EV chargers, and the EV charger station in the service area will make an annual supplement of 10,000 yuan
The construction of EV chargers is an important measure to achieve the goal of “carbon peaking and carbon neutrality”. Up to now, 84 EV chargers 165 connectors have been built in Sichuan Expressway Service Area.
The actual utilization of these EV charging stations is low, At present, the EV charger stations planned and constructed basically cover the entire road section, including the road sections with low traffic flow, and are of strong public interest. Most of the EV charging stations that have been put into operation in the province are operating at a loss.
It is understood that Jiangxi, Guizhou, and other provinces have successively launched financial subsidies for EV charger operations since 2016 to cultivate the market. After nearly 10 years of operation, the market has gradually matured.
The subsidy mechanism in Sichuan Province has just started. In 2021, Sichuan Province introduced the EV charger construction subsidy method, subsidizing 30% of EV charger equipment, and there is no subsidy policy in operation.
In order to speed up the construction of EV chargers, before the introduction of the financial subsidy policy, the member units of the expressway network in the province unanimously decided to extract a small number of funds from the expressway network operation guarantee service fee to “substitute rewards for subsidies” to subsidize EV charger operations.
The plan passed today makes it clear that each expressway EV charger station will be awarded 10,000 yuan per year for daily equipment maintenance and management. The subsidy plan will be implemented for three years or will stop when the financial subsidy policy is implemented.
How to improve expressway services, government and enterprises come together to discuss
“The draft plan submitted for voting today solicited the opinions of 55 member units of the expressway network in advance, and revised it according to the suggestions.” Liu Xiaoming, director of the Expressway Administration of the Provincial Department of Transportation, said that the voted plan will be printed and distributed as soon as possible. , to promote implementation.
Sichuan Online reporters noticed that the 8 proposals submitted to the joint meeting for voting today, in addition to the operation subsidy plan for the expressway “Heartwarming Home”, EV charger, and other equipment and facilities that provide services for the public, as well as clearing settlement, toll management and other related roads The corresponding rules for the long-term stability of network operation and management.
“This is the first joint meeting on operation and management of the expressway industry in Sichuan Province, which is held to solve problems and seek development.” Luo Jiaming, director of the Provincial Department of Transportation, said that the joint meeting is an innovation in Sichuan Province, aiming to improve The joint meeting serves as a platform to focus on solving the outstanding problems faced by road network operation and management and promote the high-quality development of operating expressways in the province.
According to reports, by the end of 2021, the mileage of expressways in Sichuan Province will reach 8,608 kilometers, covering 137 districts and counties, with 218 pairs of service areas with an average distance of 40 kilometers per pair, 722 toll stations with an average distance of 12 kilometers per pair, and annual traffic The volume was 859 million vehicles, with an average of 2.3543 million vehicles per day.
In order to meet the needs of the “one network” operation of national expressways and better promote the transformation of expressways to “service-oriented”, Sichuan Province established a joint meeting system for the operation and management of expressways in Sichuan Province last year.
The members of the joint meeting include provincial transportation. 55 companies, including the Department of Transportation, the Expressway Administration of the Provincial Department of Transportation, Sichuan Intelligent Transportation Company, Studio Group, Chengdu Traffic Investment, and all expressway operators, hold regular joint meetings, and government and enterprises jointly discuss and realize the expressway of Sichuan Province.
The management of the road network will increase efficiency, improve service quality, and benefit the masses.
EV Charger Operation Subsidy is a good project.
