Clean air plan: Mainz gets Serious with Tempo 30

Just the Offenbacher's environmental officer Paul-Gerhard Weiß (FDP) with pleasure has noted that the state of Hesse, the strategy accepts the pollution of his city, to serve the purpose of the nitrogen dioxide limit value of 40 micrograms per cubic meter to comply with. The country has incorporated the city's strategy worked in the third update to the air quality plan for Offenbach. Background a complaint by the German environmental aid, which is aimed from law systematic reasons against the government, not against the cities in which the air is loaded.

In the Rhineland-Palatinate state capital of the Same clothes. Mainz have decided, however, by a large-scale introduction of Tempo 30 at the inner-city streets to press the nitrogen values reliably. 30-signs are now in several main transport axes from Mainz-Tempo – and it will be even more. At the end, should be nearly in the whole of the old town and the new town, a maximum of 30 kilometres per hour is permissible. The introduction of the Limits on the Rhine axis, the Parcus and the Imperial road are part of the new clean air plan for the city. As the Offenbacher colleague also Knows the Mainz head of the environment Department, Katrin Eder (Green) hopes to be able to bans for older diesel vehicles avoid. Forced to have the activities in Mainz, Offenbach and many other cities of the same to the environment assistance of legal claims.

Stop-and-go to avoid traffic

In Mainz, it is sure to make with Tempo 30 the transport safer and cleaner. As the Offenbacher the Rhineland-Palatinate is a bet that the air quality is improved, also, if the environment is particularly tricky Stop-and-go traffic is avoided as much as possible. In both cities the traffic authorities are trying to through an intelligent traffic light switching ensure. This transition will, however, take place in Mainz for a few days and in Offenbach an even longer time.

the reduction of The nitrogen oxide values by the 30 km speed Limit has been calculated in Mainz from an engineering office. His results show that the emissions are reduced this year to 15 percent. Specifically, this results in a Emission-reduction up to approximately four micro-grams should be compared to the values of 2019.

With eco-tracks for cyclists, promote

On the Rhine axis, this measure alone is not enough but not quite, on the part of the to be exceeded distances in the calculation of the limit values, which makes additional Changes needed. Mainz follows the recommendations of the Federal office for the environment, Tempo of 30 measures for the Transport, to add continuity and also to control. As in Offenbach, in the city on the Rhine Cycling is further promoted, especially by Cycling, and protection strips. In the autumn should also arise on the Rhine Allee, up to the amount of the entrance of the Bank of the Rhine garage an environmental track. The ordinary lanes are crazy to 3.50 meters in the direction of middle of the road. The new track will be only buses, taxis and bicycles reserved.

Until the summer of next year, the environment should be kept track then up to the Large bleach more. You should result in the following, up to the Quintin street existing bus lane.
