The Utrecht City Council made 8 million euros available to realise the implementation of 2 traffic related Action Plans. The plans act as a concrete roadmap to stimulate clean and sustainable transport in the coming years.

On February 3rd, the Utrecht City Council voted unanimously for the Freight Traffic Action Plan 2010-2015 and voted with a large majority for the Clean Traffic Action Plan 2010-2014.Dissent for the Clean Traffic Plan came from the Liberal Democrats, arguing that the construction of electric vehicle charging stations should be left to market forces and not the Council. However, the measure received a large majority support from all the other political parties ensuring its approval. With 8 million euros made available by the Council to realise the initiative, the 2 traffic related Action Plans give Utrecht a concrete roadmap to stimulate clean and sustainable transport in the coming years. Electric vehicles, various innovations and increased efficiency in freight transport are amongst the focal points.
