News on environmental zones and air pollution

Transport minister's aid programme criticised

According to the Minister of the Environment, upgrading municipal vehicles (buses, garbage trucks or fire trucks) will not sufficiently reduce nitrogen oxide emissions. They represent only 20,000 vehicles in the whole country. On the contrary, individual cars cause most of the emissions. A common position of the "Great Coalition" on the issue of retrofitting is expected in September.
