Future Environmental Zones
Currently, the introduction of new environmental zones in further Austrian federal states is not planned. In addition to the current environmental zones in 6 federal states, the states of Kärnten, Salzburg and Vorarlberg could introduce some as well, since the problems related to fine particles and nitrogen oxide is high on the agenda in all European cities, especially since the delivery and commercial traffic gets more and more important on highways and streets.
For the federal state of Upper Austria, the introduction of an environmental zone in the city of Linz is expected.
It is to assume that the currently existing environmental zones will be enforced like it has been decided for example for the environmental zone in Tirol until 2023.
