News on environmental zones and air pollution
Berlin takes it seriously. Due to the high nitrogen oxide values, the diesel ban will be implemented in the capital from October 2019. The zone will extend over areas of the districts of Mitte and Neukölln and comprise a total of eight road sections. In June, the red-red-green coalition at the Berlin Senate passed those bans that will be supplemented by newly constructed 30 km/h zones and parking spaces. Exceptions will apply to residents living near the streets, delivery and nursing services and craftsmen.
