Danish EPA | Temporary exemption for environmental zone regulations is extended
The temporary derogation for the environmental zone regulations will be extended until 10 May 2020.
As the government announced at a press conference on April 6, only due to COVID-19, only a cautious and controlled reopening of Denmark will take place until May 10. Therefore, the temporary exemption for the environmental zone rules is extended accordingly in order to support the fast delivery of goods to the stores.
Today there are environmental zones in Copenhagen / Frederiksberg, Aarhus, Aalborg and Odense. The environmental zones require that the oldest diesel-powered trucks and buses must have a particle filter in order to drive in the zone.
The Ministry of the Environment and Food is of the opinion that there are very special circumstances that require the temporary exemption to be extended.
