Environment Ministry Mulls Madrid Congestion Charge

Source: El Pais - Fri 24th Jun 2011

The Ministry for the Environment has made a proposal which will address the increasing levels of pollution and air quality in the Capital, which has now reached such severity that the city's environment chief, Ana Botella, had to announce recently that the city was regularly exceeding legal limits and would have to call for a EU moratorium.

Information of the Ministry website spoke of plans to force the city into introducing a congestion charge.

The report was accidentally posted on the site before its content had been approved by the regions, also includes plans to limit speed of vehicles on peripheral ring roads and highways to 80km/h at peak times, as well as banning the highest-polluting vehicles from certain parts of the city.

The proposals included in the draft go beyond the measures that the Mayor of Madrid, Alberto Ruiz-Gallardón, had previously spoke of.
