News on environmental zones and air pollution
The diesel driving ban in Berlin and its enforcement has been postponed indefinitely. Originally, the ban was to have been in force since the beginning of September 2019.
However, the past few days have shown that the timetable must now be restructured again. The driving bans cannot be implemented at the moment because road signs that identify the prohibited zones cannot be delivered, installed and erected on time in the required quantities. A spokesman for the Neukölln district office told "Der Spiegel" that the signs were custom-made and would take much longer to order than conventional signs. In addition, a company would have to be found to install the prohibition signs.
