Ultra fast chargers (350kW/HPC) in Victoria

As per:

Australia is going to get its first two 350kW charging stations in Victoria, thanks to the Vic Government and JetCharge!

At the moment it sounds like 2x ABB 350kW chargers, and 2x Tritium 50kW chargers, at each site. All to be Chademo and CCS2. They are under construction now and one proposed to be done by the end of the month, the other by the end of the year.

The locations are:
* Euroa - the old temporary Tesla supercharger site at the Shell service station - https://goo.gl/maps/xpLvixAmoLs
* Barnawartha North - a new greenfields site - https://goo.gl/maps/tEn3BK17GAq

I thought some people here might be interested... and perhaps willing to scout out construction photos? :)

(For those like me who have never heard of Barnawartha North, it's a small town 18 km before you reach Wodonga!)

These two chargers tie in nicely to the NRMA network which hopefully should connect from Albury-Wodonga through to Sydney and other parts of NSW... and on to the existing Queensland network :)

Just need another two in between so you could drive a LEAF or Imiev from Albury to Melbourne. 110 kms/hr will suck the battery down pretty Quick. I don't think they would like it if you drove at 40 km/hr on the freeway.
