Environmental Zone in Aalborg

CIVITAS Initiative

An inauguration event was held on Monday 2 February 2009 at 8 am. The event took place at one of the main entrances to environmental zone. The Alderman for the Technical and Environmental Department revealed the first environmental zone sign and in the following hours drivers in the environmental zone were handed out breakfast rolls as part of the event. Also information leaflets were handed out to interested people and drivers.

Aalborg’s environmental zone requires a minimum standard for HGV and vans serving the CIVITAS area, and was the second to be introduced in Denmark since new legislation allowed it to be done.Although the movement of HGV is essential to the daily life of city centres, they contribute largely to the environmental impacts of transport, especially in terms of emission of Particulate Matter. Aalborg will try to reduce HGV emissions of CO, HC and NOx by about 25% and PM emissions by 20%.
