News on environmental zones and air pollution

Air Pollution in northern France

In the Hauts-de-France region, there has been a very high level of air pollution over the last 10 days. In the area around Lille, the air quality index has regularly risen to 8/10. Due to important air pollution, an environmental zone has already been established in Lille, although this is temporary. Despite the heavy pollution, the driving bans were not activated during the last week.
