News on environmental zones and air pollution
On 19.12.2018 negotiations are planned between the city of Wiesbaden and the Court of Justice to determine whether diesel bans are necessary. Andreas Kowol (The Greens), Head of the Environment Department, is optimistic, as there is a clear tendency to improve air quality. Following the package of 53 measures decided by the city, the permitted limit values for nitrogen oxide are to be complied with as early as 2020. To achieve this, the city will even receive 15 million euros in funding from the federal government.
