News on environmental zones and air pollution

Court ruling for Essen planned on November 15th

The environmental organization "Deutsche Umwelthilfe" had sued the city to force it to introduce diesel driving bans. The decision of the Gelsenkirchen administrative court for Essen as well as Gelsenkirchen, Bochum and Dortmund is expected on 15.11.2018. If effective measures cannot reduce nitrogen oxide levels quickly, the cities will be forced to continue their air pollution control plans with a diesel driving ban.
