News on environmental zones and air pollution
The environmental zone of Overath was introduced in 2017 and will now be suspended for several weeks. Until August 11, all vehicles may drive on the main road, even if they do not have a green badge on the windscreen. The reason for this is a diversion of the closed country road between Heiligenhaus and Overath, which leads through the environmental zone. As vehicles without a sticker would otherwise no longer be able to travel between the two towns, the environmental zone will be abolished for the duration of the summer holidays.
