News on environmental zones and air pollution
In order to avoid an impending driving ban, Leipzig relies on targeted restrictions on its main roads. One of the most important axes in the direction to the center, is to become single-lane in order to reduce pollutant emissions in a targeted manner. In concrete terms, this would mean that traffic on Wundstrasse towards the city centre would have to be restricted for more than 5,000 vehicles. At the beginning of the year, Leipzig decided on a clean air plan including 50 measures to improve air quality.
