"Hornsgatan looks by all accounts to be Stockholm's first low emission zone, where older private cars is prohibited with effect from February next year."
"the Lorry was a hot issue ahead of the autumn elections in Stockholm. The green party trafikborgarråd Daniel Helldén pushed the issue hard, while opponents argued that a dieselförbud was unnecessary, because Stockholmsluften steadily improving."
"Now sits the green Party in the new municipal council, and in the next week take trafiknämnden the decision to Hornsgatan shall be low emission zone from February, according to di.see. The decision should also have been given by the city council in June."
"– It is up to 1 000 people in the county who die a premature death each year because of poor air quality and Hornsgatan are the worst, so it is clear that this is an important measure,” says Daniel Helldén told the newspaper."
"the Decision means it is newer petrol and diesel cars by euro class 5 or 6 which may run on Hornsgatan. Two years later tightened the requirement and then it is just euroclass 6. Daniel Helldén points out that more green zones, but of a temporary nature, can be introduced on other streets."
"– for example, If it would be needed at Sveavägen so can you introduce it to the times or days when the concentrations are the highest. That is what we will watch on as the next part in this, " he says."
"the Government gave last year municipalities to introduce environmental zones that stops the older cars in the city centres from the beginning of next year. In several cities there are already environmental zones, but they are targeted at heavy trucks."
