Austria – Tirol wants more HGV traffic bans
Under the “Anti-Transit Package”, which is to come into effect from 1st August 2019, the sectoral HGV traffic ban is to be extended to goods carried by means of intermodal transport.
In addition, existing exemptions for Euro 6 trucks in transit traffic are to be repealed and general traffic bans for Euro 4 trucks are to be introduced. The bans will also apply to Euro 5 vehicles after 2021, the same year when the night traffic ban is extended to Euro 6 trucks.
Currently the Federal State Government of Tyrol is conducting talks with the European Commission trying to get its permission for the introduction of the traffic bans.
