The Environmental Zone in Burgenland
The Environmental Zone in Burgenland has been introduced on 21.06.2006 by the Landesgesetzblatt Nr.31/2006.
It is the first environmental zone introduced in Austria. The Austrian environmental badge is not yet mandatory in Burgenland. Driving is prohibited for all trucks that do not comply with Euro norm 3.
If a driving ban is violated, an environmental badge is not on the windscreen or a vehicle drives too fast on a motorway marked "IG-L", fines of up to 2,000 euros apply in accordance with § 30 (4) of IG-L, Immissionsschutzgesetz - Luft of 27.11.2015. If a manipulation of the badge is detected, these fines can even be much higher.
Burgenland is one of the smallest federal States in Austria. Approximately 291,000 inhabitants live here on an area of 3,962 km², which makes it the least populated Austrian state. The state capital is Eisenstadt where 14,000 inhabitants have their home. Burgenland already has a very good air quality. Therefore, a large environmental zone has been installed in order to preserve the high air quality.
The environmental zone extends over the entire area of the federal state. You will find more information about the environmental zone in Burgenland on the website of the federal state of Burgenland.
