News on environmental zones and air pollution
The city exposed its air pollution control plan for the fourth time during last March in order to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from transports by 70%. In addition to the various measures (more pedestrian traffic, expansion of the bus transport system, conversion to low-emission vehicles, etc.), the city is betting on better information and citizen participation in order to increase public acceptance. If these measures were not sufficient, a blue environmental zone with diesel driving bans would be introduced by 2020.
