As of Thursday next week, things will get decidedly more serious for diesel drivers in Hamburg. According to the German environmental ministry, thoroughfare restrictions will start in two Hamburg streets on the 31.05.
Following the Leipzig court decision in February, stating that German communities and cities have the right to ban diesel vehicles, the first measures are finally taking effect: Two streets will be partially blocked for diesel drivers in Hamburg Altona Nord, taking effect as of the end of the month. A part of the Max Brauer Allee will be blocked for diesel vehicles that do not conform to the Euro 6 norms. In the Stresemannstraße, only older diesel trucks will be banned, demonstrating that the measures may well be issued with flexibility.
