Milan launches Area B, Italy’s largest Low-Emission Zone

In a bid to tackle air pollution and congestion, Milan has restricted access to the city for gasoline and diesel vehicles, thus introducing the largest low emission zone in Italy.

The “Area B”, as it was named by the city, covers about 72% of the entire municipal territory.

Gasoline-powered vehicles Euro 0 and diesel-powered Euro 0, 1, 2 and 3 will be denied access to Area B from Monday to Friday from 7:30 to 19:30, excluding holidays.

The Municipality expects air pollution to decrease sharply in the next few years. By 2026, atmospheric traffic emissions will reduce altogether by approximately 25 tonnes of PM10 and between 900 and 1,500 tonnes of NOx.
