The Environmental Zone in Tirol

The Environmental Zone in Tirol has been introduced on 18.05.2016 by the Landesgesetzblatt Nr.43 for Tirol.
It is the most recent environmental zone introduced in Austria. The environmental zone came into force on 01.08.2016 and forthcoming enforcement are already known. From 2018 will the entrance forbidden for vehicles responding to the standard EURO 3 and from 2021 for vehicles responding to the standard EURO 4.

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.

View on the Inn river valley

The province of Tirol is special because of its spatial separation into two sections. The state covers a total area of 12,640 km² and counts around 750,000 inhabitants. The state is divided into 8 administrative districts. Innsbruck is the state capital, with approximately 132,000 inhabitants on a surface of 104 km².
The Tirol Environmental Zone is located near the state capital and only affects the highway. Therefore, long-distance traffic in particular has to adapt to driving restrictions.

The environmental concerns the A 12 Inntal highway on the both directions sides between the km 6, 35 in the area of the municipality of Langkampfen and the km 90,00 in the area of the municipality of Zirl.
You will find more information on the website of the federal state of Tirol.
